[Podcast] #42: Brian Stann – Marine Veteran, Hire Heroes USA


shadow

I remember watching Brian Stann fight in the UFC, thinking it was so cool to see a Marine in the octagon. Now, I think its even cooler to see a decorated Veteran taking a leadership position that allows him to influence the lives of so many other Veterans and spouses. Brian is the CEO of Hire Heroes USA. They do amazing work with Veterans looking for employment and career advancements. They proudly claim more than 50% success rate for all users that register on their website. That’s amazing considering how many visitors come to the site “just to check it out.” Hire Heroes USA is positively affecting our economy and the Veteran community with the services they offer. Brian even offers his opinion on the upcoming Mayweather/McGregor fight.

About Brian:

    Thank you Brian for doing a great job in helping Veterans find jobs and help them survive. Some need the jobs to survive and some need a push in the right direction. I am retired from being a Postmaster in the US Postal Service and was proud to put in my 34 years in the USPS. I am also a Vietnam Veteran and a US Marine. I spent 4 years in the Marines and 13 months 7 days in Vietnam. You keep up the great work and I will keep volunteering to do things for Veterans and all.
