Their Story Matters with Sara Troy and her guest John Krotec, on air from February 28th
We encourage every business in America to join GreenZone Hero ranks. A GreenZone Hero “Veteran-Friendly” Business honors veterans and themselves. They have a high standard of commitment to others AND to the US economy. They know it is the “right thing to do.”
To create commerce for American businesses that honor and serve our veterans. To build sustainable residual funding for our Nonprofit Ambassadors.
We Believe that appreciation and recognition and commerce matters! The veterans who selflessly served our Country deserve it and the businesses that provide veteran friendly goods and services deserve it, too!
We serve those who serve by providing a platform for them to connect with one another. GreenZone Hero provides tangible recognition and appreciation and commerce for both businesses and veterans – a place where veterans in particular and, all Americans in general, can find, select, and show their support by patronizing businesses that openly and proudly “do the right thing“!
We employ, serve, and are even a Veteran-owned company.

John Krotec. At 11 years old while on a neighborhood sleepover, John was sexually assaulted by an older boy. Blaming himself and frightened by physical threats, John hid the traumatic event for over 40 years – never talking about it with anyone.
Periodically over that time, he used alcohol to soothe his pain and to numb himself from the sickening memory. An automobile accident in 2012 not only changed his life but caused the trauma to resurface. Immediately after the accident, John’s life began to spiral out of control.
Episodes of anger and resentment led to the selling of his small business and to the disintegration of his 20-year marriage. John was out of control. His overspending and anger led his wife Ann to begin divorce proceedings, and by Christmas of 2015, John was in a crisis situation.
One particularly bad evening, he sought help from a suicide prevention hotline which led him to individual counseling and 41-weeks of Cognitive Behavior Therapy. He also visited a neurologist who was able to treat his medical condition, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) with CBD’s, hemp-based prescription drugs.
With a firm spiritual belief, talk-therapy, neurofeedback, and with hard work, John’s life and marriage is on the mend. Using his new focus, he also created an innovative company, GreenZone Hero, that changes the way veteran-commerce is viewed by American businesses. Additionally, his Task Force Zen project (currently in the planning stage) will help those who have suffered traumatic events find programs that will help them recover without the stigma often associated with trauma.
Bravo748 and GreenZone Hero are teaming up to honor all branches of American Combat Veterans and Gold Star Families. As companies connected to serving and working with Veterans, our hope is to share publicly and collectively, the truth of what it means to pay the ultimate sacrifice, laying one’s life down for friends. Military combat men and women and their families live with courage, commitment, and character each and every day.
