More About Hiring Our Heroes

Hiring Our Heroes (HOH) is giving away another Toyota, but that’s not all it does to connect the military community – service members, military spouses, and Veterans – with American businesses to create economic opportunity and a strong and diversified workforce.

By utilizing the U.S. Chamber’s vast network of state and local chambers and strategic partners from the public, private and nonprofit sectors, Hiring Our Heroes helps to bridge the civilian-military divide within the business community.

    I’ve said for years that BRCC is not, nor have they ever been conservatives. They wouldn’t know a conservative principle if it bitt them in the butt. What they are are foul mouthed ex-military. I’ll give them kudos all day long for serving our country. Too bad, they’re more interested in pleasing the MSM than knowing and following the principles on which this country was established.

    1st, thanks for the giveaway.
    2nd, what exactly is the model and build out on this?
    No specs? Maybe as a jeep guy I am expecting too much.

    Take care and stay safe, all.

    PS To a lot of my brothers, your racism is not patriotism. Take a step back from the conspiracies and understand we are in a hostile environment where there have been almost 38 million infections and more than 628,000 mothers, fathers, children, grandparents, uncles, aunts, hunters, babysitters, retired folks and politicians who have lost their lives because of Covid-19, and now the even worse Delta Variant. Oh, and of course Black Live Matter. Respect that. Mask up, ladies and gentlemen.

    Boy Oh Boy – One Plethra of whiners , Glad to see Toyota honoring US military Vets

  4. MJ August 14, 2021 at 10:07 pm

    There are enough unsold vehicles from each auto manufacturer every year to give any needy veteran over 15 vehicles to improve their lives. What I’m saying is there should be no contest, there should be a grateful (write-off) giving to all vets in need. Politicians can can serve 1 term and have a lifetime payment of their service salary, 100% health care, kids and grands get free college, and some have us as bodyguards for the duration of their life. Our 1 or more term service result is not nearly equivalent to that (non-ptsd, no limb-loss, numerous corrupt individual, no life on the line) service. We may not agree on what is best for nation, as is our right and freedom as Americans, but what we deserve is so disgusting and obviously below what it should be from our great country. Thank you all for your service (I wish those words had real weight to them), and god bless those that serve us in the VA (I wish that also had more weight). Lastly an early congrats to the winner of the truck, may it serve you as much as you have for the USA.

    What the heck? Why not Alaska and Hawaii? That’s maddening and totally unnecessary to exclude two states with a MAJOR military presence and LARGE veteran populations. We don’t quality… WHY? exactly. I’d like to at least know the reason. We have Toyota Dealers here in Alaska. We have a state Chamber of Commerce that is presumably a member of the U.S. Chamber.

    Im happy you help enlisted military but i got one question ?what abought all the service members (vets) that are hung out to dry we get a hand shake and a half hearted thanks all the wile were homeless poor strugling to survive yes struggling to survive. Shame on this country shame to think i served this country for this.

  13. Bo Mahoe August 12, 2021 at 8:37 pm

    Sad that this program is only available to military/veteran residents of the contiguous United States. The Nisei Veterans of WWII are still the most highly decorated unit for their time of service. Many of them are from all islands in the State of Hawaii. Then there are the conflicts that follow: Korea, Vietnam, GWAT veterans, and others that come from Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, Samoa, and others. Quite disrespectful to AAPI and retired veterans that live not on the continent, if you ask me.

    • Mauricio August 14, 2021 at 9:36 am

      I agree wholeheartedly with your comment brother. I served with the 25th Light Infantry Division from Hawaii currently living outside of the continental US. We too fought our asses off. Quite disrespectful…

  14. Alex S. August 12, 2021 at 8:13 pm

    It’s great that this is a no-fee lottery for veterans. As a question, is this something that Toyota donated (while Ford, Chevy, and Dodge Ram passed on)… or something that is purchased?

    If it’s a donated vehicle, Toyota thanks to you.

      Why treat residents of Alaska or Hawaii differently from the other 48 states? Were our sacrifices less valuable?

      • richard f davis August 12, 2021 at 10:04 pm

        how about those who served that are citizens of our 5 inhabited territories

      • Michael August 13, 2021 at 6:41 pm

        Your value is no lesser. Lower 48 has the network in place. Crossing borders unfortunately complicates things where delivery to either or outweighs the purpose of the promotion. I figured perhaps in fairness, there’s drawings open only to AK or HI residents, respectively.

  20. Robert Leary Felan August 12, 2021 at 11:22 am

    I am a Coast Guard veteran of the viet nam war, we patrolled the gulf of tonkin near the river opening at Vung Tao from 1967 to 1968 and got too close to shore one taking a round in our stack around December causing us to have repairs done in Sasabo Japan. Very proud of my service time and ever so grateful for the medical services the VA provides veterans.

  21. Charles August 12, 2021 at 10:55 am

    Most companies that say, “We hire veterans” only do so for public relations reasons. I wish I had the numbers, but after 90 days they let the #Veteran go. So may they should say, “We hire veterans, but we don’t keep them.” Civilians don’t like military people working for them. The civilian workforce is jealous because we get there early, leave late, exceed all standards, ask questions to learn the rules faster, and learn the job next to us and above us just in case. However, the last part has people thinking we are going to take their job. Those of us that have been to combat have the stigma of being looked at as ticking time bombs waiting to go postal, especially if we say we have weapons at home and like to hunt or keep up our shooting skills. In the military, if you are early you ARE late. If you don’t learn the job next to you or above you then when people go down the mission won’t be completed. As for our like of weapons and our capability, why don’t civilians look at other civilians the same way? There have been civilians that have “gone postal.” All the attributes that make us “Hard Chargers,” “Squared Away,” or “Leadership” seem to make us too much of a great worker and are a threat to the civilian workforce. No wonder so many of my brothers and sisters are homeless.

    This is just another PR stunt to gloss over the fact they may hire veterans, but they don’t necessarily keep them. I’d love there to be accountability for companies that SAY they hire veterans to see how many are kept and why either way.

    Life as a soldier was great, but coming back to society has been a little different from what some of us as military men and women have excepted. Finding jobs that are not just food service or not finding one at all has been hard for veterans. We have the skills to learn and to do a lot of moe for our country if giving the chance but this is not the case. Served from 1987-2010,

We were called all kinds of names and sometimes experienced physical treats. That’s the ones I loved. They got the first swing, then it was my turn. I got to give several poor chumps a nice nap..

  79. KA GORDON August 11, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    Its funny how totally disable veterans want free hunting licenses. Apparently they arent handicapped enough to walk around for hours looking for something to kill. Maybe they should take their walking legs into an employent office and get a job. I get 20% disability because the ability to have children was taken away from me by the military doctors. Funny how many kids those disabled veterans can have and complain they cant afford them.

    …HOW do you actually put your entry into this sweepstakes for the brand new Toyota motor vehicle? I apologize here. Please simply understand that as a visually-impaired person, I’ve had to have someone read all of this information to me. And so now, neither one of us can figure out HOW to actually enter this sweepstakes for the possibility of my perhaps winning this free Toyota motor vehicle. ….I’m an honorably-dischared veteran of the United States Air Force.

    Alaska IS Continental United States but is it the contiguous United States ? A new term to justify discrimnating against Alaska (and Hawaii) Would you believe that someone Sells Toyotas in Alaska…I’ve Seen Them Myself ! If someone tells you they are placing limits on what they say is a fair and good thing ask yourself if it truely is. I am one of MANY Alaskan Vertrans feeling once again left out and let down…Thanks anyway.

    • Ed Walker August 12, 2021 at 9:03 am

      I attended a local VA open house 2 years ago just to see what was offered to me, other than coffee and donuts. They saw I was released from active duty in 1977 from Camp Lejeune and told me I was eligible for full medical regardless of income. Have you applied at your local VA for benefits?

  147. Ed Carlberg August 11, 2021 at 8:57 pm

    I have tried to enter comments. As a disabled Viet Nam Vet there is still some resentment and a lot of distrust in our elected officials, Democrat and Republican, which is why I affiliate with no party. But I will forever stand behind our Armed forces and Veterans. America has fallen and recovered many times and the will of American Veterans and service members have been a large part. Americans ability to evolve and create jobs building America and American products that overcome the hopelessness we have seen before. The trades are as much in demand as academics and even more so when rebuilding So, rebuild America with American products and American pride, hire the Vet.

  148. Micheal Heath August 11, 2021 at 8:56 pm

    Only an employer that understands the ability of an American veteran to evaluate a situation, assess the needs then act in the appropriate manner can understand the value of a veteran. Only the smartest employer will find a way to fully utilize the physical and mental capabilities of an true American Warrior.

An in retirement , when your income retires with ya,….they still have the aldasity to threaten to take your home or property if ya don’t pay up…? How is this American ? Is the person responciple for giving these folks this kind of authority, “Sleeping, or just Stupid . Maybe a little retarded?…One thing is for sure…The tax law is.

    Serving was one of the best things for so many of us. Side affects of war for all who served are not worth the years of suffering. Free stuff is great but the bare necessary should be provided by the VA. Been through all the programs and the meds are still wrong. We are NOT all the same! Some meds work for some but not all!!!!! HELP US

  158. Guy M Riccio August 11, 2021 at 8:36 pm

  171. Larry LaCroix August 11, 2021 at 8:14 pm

    Served as a combat infantryman in Vietnam (67-68) and over 8 years total. It was disgusting to hear our President call me “stupid” for not getting out of serving as he did (by lying about the bone spurs he never had). It was also sad to hear him say soldiers who died were “suckers” and those volunteering to serve today were “losers” who couldn’t make it on the outside. He chastised McCain for not supporting his “birther” movement and derided his heroic service as a captured pilot saying he “liked people who wern’t captured”. America was great until he came along and fomented violence against our democracy – may this wonderful country never suffer through another period like that again.

    Troops that served in combat in authorized wars like Vietnam in Field Artillery should be given CAB ” Combat Artilleryman Badge ” awards just like the Infantry Troops were given CIB ” Combat Infantyman Badge ” awards.

  177. Richard Allen August 11, 2021 at 8:02 pm

    That is horrible contest. Did anyone actually read the fine print on that thing? Do people actually realize that when you win a large prize it holds a 40% federal tax on it plus anything your state levy’s against it. Just yikes on so many levels. They’re basically saying “here’s a vehicle on us and thanks for the tax break you’re giving us from donating this and having you pay the taxes on is”. Absolutely despicable.

    Why does does the VA System allow people like Tri West Care to intervene and interfere with the patient-doctor relationship?? I think we pay this outfit too much money needlessly and it sure is a mess every time I have to work with them.
    They even put out phony information and actually completely false information about how they try to contact you when they don’t and they never confess up to all the mistakes they make. Sad indeed and I believe another rip off of our government services.

    Texas is pretty great to the Veterans and Active Duty members of our Armed Forces. There are also many locations that acknowledge service and offer discounts to us. I am a rider for the Veterans of Foreign Wars Motorcycle Group of Texas. We strive with other stop help address Battle 22 and however we can help our Vets, Active Duty, their families and our community. If you in Texarkana on the 27-29 of this month I invite you to stop in and join our 4 state 4 days of discussion and discovery. The purpose is comradeship but most importantly find a way to eliminate the 22 a day problem that effects our Armed Forces and Veterans. More has to be done. The people and government should be doing more. If they won’t we will. I hope to see you there and God Bless America!

    If the civilian population would realize in full what a military background would do for their organization, vets would have the lowest rate of unemployment.

    • Core August 11, 2021 at 9:45 pm

      Agreed. However poor leadership and morale in civilian jobs most often leads to a breakdown in the company. Most CEOs do not value a team they look at employees like capital and discourage networking in the ranks, which leads to coordination for better healthcare and more benefits. Entry and Mid levels positions do not pay as much as military service for many, and veterans struggle with housing, medical care, service injuries, and the stress associated with it. Combat service makes you want to dig in and ride out hard times: the fox hole complex. So veterans get stuck. Civilians are hard to work with in many cases because they do not value the team. Veterans are programmed to lead, suck it up, or fix those who malfunction whereas in service we do not let the slowest, weakest, and most difficult to deal with go unchallenged. We pick them up carry them and inspire them to step it up. Civilians are not perceptive to this for the most part. CEOs will fire someone who does not do the job, and their workers develop a herd mentality rather than a servant leadership mentality.

      When you get out of the military all of your training should count towards civilian equivalent training. Truck drivers, mechanics, engineers, paramedics, and more get so much training in the military. It’s crazy that it just gets ignored and a vet has to start all over again with certification and classes.

      0% ? Or 100% Reduction. Yeah !!

    • Brad Turner August 11, 2021 at 9:17 pm

      Because Kentucky has been run by Republicans for decades. The same group that said nothing when Trump called Us suckers and loosers for volunteering to serving our country. When Kentucky starts joining the rest of the world. And electing forward thinkers. Instead of people hell bent on taking us back to the 1800s. Then and only then will Veterans be taken care of by this state. In other words….. Stop voting for those that don’t care about you and the sacrifices you have made to this country. Especially ones that are Draft Dodgers like Trump.
