The continued expansion of our US Military, disabled veterans projects has been very successful. We have powerful, over-arching goals that are spread across a multi-phased attack stratagy that:

  1. Was previously laughed at, by some, and ridiculed as stupid, and developed in the wrong US region.  Yet, we are now on our 8th year of profitability.
  2. Realizes some American citizens in business have no interest in seeing veterans succeed. We continue working on debunking the whole, "Broken Veteran," myth.
  3. Was predicted, by a few experts, to be bankrupt within the first five months of opening in 2008. Our proforma and P&L have proven that was wrong now in the years of 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014.  Especially in setting three, #1 world sales records and turning 251 million in one year with just five bedrooms and no restaurant or weddings.  What would happen if we had more rooms, weddings and a restaurant?
  4. Our project has supposedly been found to be difficult to understand, by 18% of potential developers. This was reviewed and found to be due to their having no interest in studying it - or reading. Short attention span behavior took control of 18% of evaluated minds; shutting off that humans cerebral cortex, and therefore disallowing them from taking part in being successful.  We are not here to entertain people with an hour and a half long movie and film - this is hard work.  The very rich simply throw large sums of money at projects to complete them.  The only folks being entertained are the tens of thousands of guests giving the project its high marks and world awards. Any team member should be ready for hard work.
  5. Are rejected by 39% of angel investors, funding experts, capital raising professionals and accredited investors due to, "not being a cash rich adrenal provider," ... "we're looking for huge cows that flood us with financial return. Which is what real investors want," ... "we could care less about vets or doing the right thing or doing ANY thing to help others," ... "we are here to help ourselves, to your project, or if we can, to your money."  Our projects are uninterested in 30 pieces of silver or massive ROI, ROMI, ROMO.  If you are interested in unethical deals or massive (abnormally promised or inflated) returns - go elsewhere.
"The green Army men we grew up with are not accurately showing our young men and women the truth of warfighting, returning home and then dying while waiting for hospital care at the VA.  The clear bag of green plastic figures doesn't include the truth many have tried to hide.  The shame when a vet hangs themselves due to being unable to find medical care.  The realities of being unable to find jobs, being blocked from creating businesses by federal laws preventing veterans from succeeding in their own companies and the VA killings of hidden veterans (on secret lists) is disgusting, filthy and criminal.  Americans are unimpressed with these crimes committed against their family members. We seek to reverse that and create small business opportunities for veterans.  Since this is what we are good at and have had so much success - we would like to share and help other vets."  Marti Mongiello
We are ready to move forward and uniquely work together in 1. affecting our local towns, 2. expanding The Presidential Service Center™, 3. creating The US Food History Museum™, 4. expanding our number of available hotel rooms, and building the American Revolutionary War Living History Center™ (ARWLHC) & Experience.
