    Armand Ventura: Businessman, Historian and Photographer


    Armand Ventura works for a large company that makes electronics for the travel industry. He has years of experience in the field, especially in marketing and sales. Armand has a deep love of photography. He is most proud of his smart and beloved granddaughter. He is also a history buff. He admires General George S. Patton on his resolve and decisiveness, General Eisenhower on his organization and planning skills, and General Lewis “Chesty” Puller-the most decorated member of the U.S. Marine Corps, for his leadership. He is also an admirer of President Franklin D. Roosevelt for his leadership in bringing the country out of an economic recession and on his astute decisions during World War II. He is also a fan of President Ronald Reagan who he believes was instrumental on the dissolution of the Soviet Union on December 26, 1991. In addition, Mr. Armand Ventura is a fan of President John F. Kennedy for his brilliant and memorable speeches.


    Armand Ventura is a strong believer of hard work and self-reliance. He was a self-taught man like his idol, Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft Corporation. He is well read and has a critical and analytical mind. He looks at different ways of resolving issues and problems at world and in life and arrives with the best possible solutions for everyone concerned. He is an independent thinker but also an advocate of teamwork and cooperation. He sees that a company could progress more efficiently if the members work together and coordinates its action.


    Armand is also attentive to charities and social issues. He is a strong advocate and supporter of schools for North Dakota’s Native American children. He understands that our Native American brothers and sisters have had an unfair deal during the early part of the American development. For him, it is the duty of every American to support the native Americans and to make sure that their culture can be preserved and admired not only for today, but also for the future. He is also a strong supporter of the Vietnam War Memorial and the Marine Corp Heritage Foundation. He is also a donor to the local Alzheimer’s Association. He would also like to one day open a gentleman’s school for young, disenfranchised boys and help them learn how to effectively address problems.


    For Mr. Armand Ventura, being a strong supporter of said groups and associations is one way of giving thanks to this great and nurturing nation of the United States of America. He always believes that giving back is Thanksgiving in our daily lives.
