Background Statement
Education is accomplished through public display of vehicles and aircraft at airshows, civic events, schools, scouting events, military veteran events, and parades focusing on increasing the awareness and appreciation of our military across all ages and generations.
 
The exhibition of vehicles and aircraft is interactive allowing for seeing, touching, smelling and riding in the actual vehicles used by our military forces and veterans. Military Machines of American Freedom enjoys a close relationship with members of the Military Vehicle Preservation Association (MVPA).
 
This relationship provides for access to a wide variety of military vehicles of many types and eras for use in diverse events. Access to restoration experts and veterans with intimate knowledge of these vehicles and aircraft allows for exceptional educational opportunities.

Board Chair Statement
Military Machines of American Freedom is a non-profit, all volunteer organization and as such is dependent upon its volunteers and the support of the public to accomplish its mission. Our approach to education, interacting with the public, and accomplishing our mission is unique in contrast to using solely a fixed museum location. By bringing the vehicles and aircraft from a wide variety of military conflicts, spanning several eras, to the public at various venues, greater numbers and diversity of individuals can be reached.
 
Because the vehicles and aircraft are accompanied by restoration experts, period re-enactors and military veterans, the opportunity for an exceptional historically accurate educational opportunity is increased with a greater likelihood of information being retained and enjoyed by all generations of viewers.  Many of the events allow the public to ride in the actual vehicles, encouraging an "all sensory" experience ensuring a memorable event.  The majority of the public never have the opportunity to experience these vehicles and the history and lives of the veterans behind them in a venue such as what is offered. 
Description
Military Machines of American Freedom provides education to the public through participation at a diversity of events to include static displays, parades, veteran organization events, etc.  Military vehicles and aircraft are provided spanning many eras of American military history, typically WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, etc.  Events attended often provide an opportunity for the public to actually ride in the vehicle, providing an "all sensory" experience and simultaneously hearing from veterans describing their military experiences with these vehicles or aircraft.

Population Served K-12 (5-19 years), Adults,
Long term Success
The public will have a better understanding of the use, contribution, and history of the vehicles and aircraft used by our American military veterans.  Emphasis is placed upon recognizing our military veterans and the sacrifices they made and continue to make for the freedoms cherished in the United States.
Program Success Monitored By
Success in achieving our mission is subjective and based upon public response and requests for return participation.
Program Comments
CEO Statement/Executive Director/Board Comments
As a young non-profit organization, we face the challenge of first publicizing our mission and then attracting and maintaining volunteers to carry out our mission. Further challenges are faced in financially supporting the attendance of events and transporting vehicles and aircraft to the various events in which the organization participates. Additional expenses are faced with the restoration and maintenance of vehicles and aircraft.

Foundation Comments
  • Financial figures are taken from the in-house financial statements
  • On assets and liabilities: "We currently have no liabilities. Our current assets are limited to vehicles and helicopters which technically are still owned by the government at this time. We are custodians of the vehicles and aircraft until a period of time, typically 18 months to 5 years depending on the equipment, at which time ownership transfers to the organization." - Kevin Vislocky, Board Chair
