The Commemorative Coin projects were successfully achieved for the National Infantry Foundation, the Army Historical Foundation, and the Command and General Staff College Foundation. The totals raised for all three coins will be in the $27-30M range.

The Chwat Group utilizes its expertise in linking history related programs and unique donor projects with congressional connections customized for each client, as well as connections with House and Senate Armed Services Committees, DOD and related appropriations subcommittees, and with military legislative assistants (MLAs) on Capitol Hill in each congressional office.
