US Military Maintenance Northeast Ohio is a Veteran-owned commercial maintenance and janitorial service company based in Youngstown, Ohio. I'm George McDonnell, a 22-year US Navy Veteran. I've served Active Duty and Reserve.
Our goal at USMM NEOhio is to provide local businesses with an outstanding cleaning experience and at the same time impact the Veteran unemployment crisis by providing US Veterans with gainful employment at a decent wage. Many Veterans have trouble readjusting to civilian society and sustaining gainful employment. It is imperative the we as a society and as a Nation provide opportunities for the men and women who put their lives on the line to protect the principles of freedom and democracy for us. Together we can put Veterans to work!
All Veterans have learned how to clean on the first day of boot camp, and we all have at least four years cleaning experience. We all also understand the concepts of discipline, service, and "attention to detail".
Let's put a dent in our local Veteran unemployment problem together. We are looking for local companies to partner with us in this program. When you hire us we can then can hire and train local Veterans. You can help us to employ Veterans who have served honorably and are ready to work, and at the same time maintain the professional image that your company deserves.
USMM NEOhio is part of the US Military Maintenance network of commercial janitorial companies, a nationwide initiative to employ US Veterans in the commercial maintenance industry. A percentage of revenue earned by USMM Northeast Ohio is donated back to HirePatriots and Patriotic Hearts, both 501(c)3 non-profits that are dedicated to the cause of ending Veterans' unemployment in our country. When you allow us to serve you we will use the social media infrastructure of HirePatriots to inform the world of your assistance in the fight to end Veteran unemployment.
Our military is taught from day one that they must have pride in oneself, in their unit and in their country. Everything must be cleaned and inspection-ready in order to maintain the health and welfare of all others. We will apply this same military philosophy while maintaining your property. Our veterans and their families will ensure that your property is cleaned to your satisfaction, and while doing so we will help put an end to veterans' unemployment in our area.
My name is George McDonnell. I've served 22 years in the US Navy between 1980 and 2014, retiring as a Chief Petty Officer. I was on Active Duty for 5-1/2 years, then reaffiliated with the Navy Reserve in 1998. On Active Duty I was trained as an Electrician and served aboard the USS MARS (AFS-1). As a Reservist I served with the Office of Naval Intelligence and the US European Command. I was deployed to Washington, DC in the wake of the 9/11 attacks and some years later I was deployed again, spending most of 2010 in Paktika Province, Afghanistan.
I have experience in the IT industry and for the past 10 years have been running a local IT service business. I wasn't looking for something new but US Military Maintenance came to me. I read an article about the cause on LinkedIn, and contacted Mark Baird to learn more about the concept. I have spent a big chunk of my life around servicemembers and I have a passion for helping and working with Veterans. As a Navy Chief, the concept of taking care of our Sailors is paramount to me. Now that I no longer have Sailors reporting to me I am turning my attention to taking care of our Veterans.
Veterans are unemployed at nearly TWICE the rate of their age-group peers. Something has to be done to reverse this trend and USMM, along with Patriotic Hearts and HirePatriots.com, is leading the charge to put our nation's Veterans to work. I sincerely invite you to join us.
