Gary is a retired Army veteran who came out of the service with a great understanding of various aspects of the Army, as well as an entrepreneurial desire. While in the service he noticed that many of the products that were being used were poorly made and sold to the Army for very high prices. He decided that he could help the Army by building quality, durable products that could be purchased much cheaper than from the current production facilities.

Gary decided to follow up on this endeavor by founding his own enterprise. His greatest success came with the development of the BiCon, a military suited shower/latrine facility, in 2009. In 2010, he had planned to seriously market this product; however, his plans were halted when he was sent to travel internationally for long spans with his full-time job. For the next two years he only had the opportunity to push his smaller, less significant products.

Gary is determined to start selling the BiCon in 2012. He is asking for a loan to help him actively sell the BiCon through traveling to different trade shows and starting a marketing campaign. He now employs two other workers.
