DALLAS, April 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LegalShield, one of the nation's leading providers of legal safeguards for individuals, families and small businesses, announced today a partnership with American Jobs for American Heroes, to create a military outreach program offering servicemen and women the tools to start their own home-based business.
The program will allow LegalShield to visit military reserve installations around the nation throughout the remainder of 2014. LegalShield will make a series of presentations that focus on the unique business opportunity that exists for reservists as LegalShield associates. A portion of the membership fees secured through the presentations will go directly to DAV (Disabled American Veterans).
"Our nation's military veterans have developed key skills in leadership, teamwork and discipline that every business values in its employees," said Rip Mason, CEO of LegalShield. "We're excited about this new initiative with American Jobs for American Heroes to give back to our nation's reservists and assist them in finding new opportunities as they serve our country."
"We're thrilled to have LegalShield as a partner to assist in creating more business opportunities for our troops," said Stacy Bayton of American Jobs for American Heroes. "Our troops offer a tremendous range of skills that can benefit any employer and with LegalShield's help we will be able to offer a portable and flexible business model for reservists."
