Steve Thomas here. Founder of Oscar-Mike.

People are always curious where the idea of Oscar-Mike came from so from the “horse’s mouth”, I’d like to share it with you..

While I was working on Cruise Ships many years ago I had the unfortunate experience of basically witnessing a suicide of one of our Veterans. The whole experience seriously affected me.

At the time, I was reading a book called Start Something That Matters by Blake Mycoskie. He is the Founder of the shoe company TOMS. As you probably know, their business philosophy is to donate a pair of shoes to a child in need for every pair they sell.

I loved the idea about creating a for profit business whilst also being able to give back. At the time I never knew how that book and experience would impact my life.

Fast-forward to now.

As a local Realtor I’m often asked by my clients as to who I know that might be a good contractor to take care of required jobs in their home.

I then have to find people to do the work. The problem is that sometimes they’re late, sometimes they don’t do a good job…Then that reflects on me as I recommended them.

To make sure my clients get the BEST service possible. ALL the time and to help give back to those that have risked and sacrificed so much…Oscar-Mike was formed.

Understanding the struggle that some of our (highly-skilled and highly-trained) Veterans have adjusting to civilian life which often sadly means unemployment, I realized that there were enough people that needed employment and with the right skill-sets we could give them work, and with a percentage of the profits we make, we can use that to give back and help local Veteran associated charities in their mission.

We aim to predominantly hire Veterans but also reach out to highly trained and skilled tradesmen to help ensure we reach our goals and objectives in serving the wider veteran community.
