The Presidential Service Center®
A museum on support and protection of the U.S. Presidency
Through 2018, we have had 24,230,000+ visitors to the center, website, museum, and been featured on CNN International, PBS and FOX to 2.6 billion viewers. We've been featured in 160+ newspapers and magazines on earth, in just ten years.
As you arrive for the first time to celebrate supporting and protecting the presidency of the United States of America, you'll feel a sense of pride and momentum building. Presently encased in a 5,000 square foot mansion and museum, the center celebrates how most President's grew up in a simple home. Few were born into wealth and sprawling estates.
We've opened our newest exhibit, "Silence ISN'T Golden," in conjunction with, "Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House," motion picture starring Liam Neeson. The film is the story of Mark Felt, who under the name "Deep Throat" helped journalists Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein uncover the Watergate scandal in 1974.
Prince Charles (the 21-year old) meets President Nixon. Princess Anne also attended (19) and Nixon mentioned that, "the Prince of Wales visits America once every 50 years." The Prince said visits would be much more frequent, but the next time back, this President would be gone quickly.
In conjunction with the US Presidential Culinary Museum, we will be featuring our NIXON catsup that we serve, the President's love of catsup on cottage cheese and the indigenous ingredient of sumac that we use to make our catsup. If you've ever been a guest overnight, you know about the raves on the NIXON catsup made here!
Enjoy our exhibit: "Jackie, How Could You?" launched in conjunction with the motion picture, "Jackie," the exhibit goes into different directions, than the film, and beyond topics anyone is willing to showcase in the museum industry.

Presidential Service began with the American military, in the late 1700's, as military aides and other positions. One of the first to begin was the Life Guard for General Washington in 1776.
In the 1880's The US Navy requested of President Rutherford B. Hayes, to open a "mess," (or restaurant) which is now known as the White House Staff Mess. It features restaurant service and thousands of take-out meals daily with close to 75 US Navy chefs. The Navy chefs shop, cook, travel with and protect the Presidency.
The Presidential Service Center™ has completed a five-year feasibility and research study phase, that began in 2010. It is housed with the existing, and highly successful, Presidential Culinary Museum®. It remains interactive (under agreement) with The Official Society of World Chefs in Friendship since request in 1994. Their aim being to foster care and kindness amongst countries of the world visiting the American White House and Camp David. To interact with our Presidential Service Badge (PSB) authorized, serial numbered members - please contact us at 001 (704) 937-2940.
The museum is open seven days per week for tours and bus groups.
Initial funding of $250,000.00 USD has been provided by private parties as the museum continues to grow and be digitized.
Digitization includes cataloging, QR codes, and films showcasing POTUS, FLOTUS and CHOTUS as well as all elements of those who legally served, in honorable status.

Symposium on the Clinton Administration
Clinton Presidential Center 10th Anniversary and Alumni Reunion
Little Rock, Arkansas
November 14, 2014
We have recently fielded a flurry of questions about our membership and the, "nuclear football." Often the question about opening the briefcase up, pushing a red button, and firing missiles is suggested.
People are rightly concerned as the President of the United States has the sole authority and decision making capacity to fire our arsenal of close to 950 missiles quickly.
Additional questions have always been popular of misplaced, "cookies and biscuits," by a dry cleaner finding one in President Carter's suitcoat pocket, placed into the shoes of President Reagan with his blood-stained shirt and pants cut off at the hospital.
The exact contents of the briefcase is often asked and what it's like for our Presidential Aides to help the President inside his homes, while he is traveling, or even on a ship.
In 2008 a new, gold Presidential Service Center (PSC) Distinguished Service Medal (DSM) was discussed, reviewed and authorized for complete payment under private funds forwarded from 14592 badge holder and member Martin CJ Mongiello. Discussion ensued in 2008/9 with a sample idea commissioned in 2010. During the years of 2010 and 2011, the program was sent to feasibility and research with possible adoption, was rejected and eventually suspended for further design. In 2012, Mr. Mongiello received guidance from former Presidential aides that visited the museum in 2013 with former Presidential Security Detail member (USMC) Travis McVey. The medal moved forward in 2013 under new design and was authorized for striking to showcase a font of knowledge, lit with flame, bearing present status and ongoing service to better society. Encased in a traditional wreath with a circular design of continuity, the medal is awarded to those serving to make society better and subject to revocation and stripping of award (droit moral) based on behavior standards. Each award winner agrees to their good conduct in the future as it would reflect on our members center and association.

In 2014 it was suggested that a PSC Achievement Medal and a PSC Commendation Medal be struck with associated handbook, codification and matching miniature tuxedo and rack ribbons at a meeting with the Sons of the American Revolution host Director, Mark Anthony, at the National Convention in Greenville, SC. The link provided is for evaluation and discussion and does not constitute any form of endorsement.
In 2014, during a meeting with Tennessee state Governor Bill Haslam, and his wife Crissy, on Tennessee Plaza for the Veteran's Day Ceremony a gift of a coin was made. In attendance was former Afghanistan, US Marine Corps sniper Daniel Dean along with Travis McVey and Marti Mongiello. It was conceived and later discussed with veteran's affairs expert, Stephen Cochran, of the STOP 22 Suicide Campaign and the ASMBA Star Foundation to develop a coin. Additional support was had from Ralph Slane of AMVETS. The Presidential Service Coin was paid for entirely with private funds (so as to not burden members with donation requests) and designed for sharing and sale as a fundraiser. Numerous sizes were examined, developed with several, plush, velvet cases featuring gold print and an eventual, full, 3" size. This is one of the largest coins ever issued on earth and is hand painted. As of 2016, the coins have been shipped worldwide and are available to purchase online at our official, licensed store at Facebook (NO FACEBOOK ACCOUNT REQUIRED TO SHOP).
