The GreenZone Hero community founded by John Krotec, says,
We encourage every business in America to join GreenZone Hero ranks. A GreenZone Hero “Veteran-Friendly” Business honours 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 honour 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.
Coming in October
We will be bringing a show series specializing in veterans stories of adapting back into mainstream life. Each series will address a certain aspect of their new directions. This is their journey but could be ours, and being so inspired by their strength and courage we find solutions and that strength in our own life’s journey.
