"We are unveiling the future of emergency and transitional housing for our United States Veterans at Veterans Village, Las Vegas, Nevada. Business as usual is over allowing our U.S. Veterans to live homeless in the streets across the USA with our breakthrough in technology utilizing 100% recycled Ocean containers and off the shelf components to create affordable, well designed and efficient housing called Veterans Village Instant Built House. The initial Master Planned Veterans Village container housing is being planned to be built in Las Vegas and this model can and will be replicated throughout urban cities and rural towns in the United States."~ Arnold Stalk, Founder Veterans Village/SHARE
