Entrepreneur Don Buckner’s patriotic plan began in 1998, when he attempted to find several American-made products online, but was unable to do so. Frustrated, he took website served as a directory resource connecting patriotic consumers to more than 300,000 American-made manufacturers for several years. He also acquired the Domain MadeInAmerica.com.

Don is no stranger to success in business since he has been in the manufacturing industry for over 30 years. He started out as a mechanic and welder with no formal education. In 1997, he launched Vac-Tron Equipment, (VacTron.com) a company that was born in his garage. In 2000, Vac-Tron was listed on the INC 500 as the 13th fastest growing privately held company, growing 6500% in just 3 years. In the same year, he was awarded the 2000 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award for the State of Florida. Buckner is also in the Business Hall of Fame and Vac-Tron was Named Industry of the Year and Business of the Year.

After the acquisition of Vac-Tron Equipment in 2018 by Vermeer Corporation, Don decided it was time to go all-in on the #AmericanMade plan and rent the Indianapolis Convention Center to hold the first-ever Made in America Trade show which is that jumping-off point.

“Don is a great example of how great patriots do not have to put a military uniform on but serve in other ways. So many people want to participate in this country and serve this country, and what Don is doing is creating the perfect opportunity for Americans to come together and make the choice to support American made products. That is the beauty of the seed that he’s planting in Indianapolis.” – Major Dan Rooney, Folds of Honor. Don donates heavily to local and global missions, lives on a cattle ranch with his 6 children and 3 grandchildren, and always gives God the credit for all his many blessings.

Our next guest is Patti Garibay, Founder of the The American Heritage Girls  a Christian-based Scouting-like organization. The organization has more than 43,000 members with troops in all 50 states in early 2017, plus Americans living in twelve other countries. American Heritage Girls was founded around a kitchen table in 1995 by a group of parents living in a northern suburb of Cincinnati, Ohio. Their frustration with the way their beloved scouting organization was handling matters of faith and culture led to a vision of a fun-filled, Christ-centered, service-oriented, outdoor emphasized educational opportunity for girls. This new Christian organization would contribute to the betterment of each girl’s community while strengthening her walk with Christ. American Heritage Girls was born from this vision, along with a healthy helping of tears and prayer. The very first AHG Troop was made up of a wonderful group of 4th and 5th-grade girls. https://americanheritagegirls.org/
