Daniel Bolz, born and raised in Michigan, grew up appreciating the joy of good art and the beauty of nature. Daniel’s background encompasses the worlds of art, education, and business. His passion for the arts was developed at a young age through his mother’s work as a playwright, actress, and director of a children’s television program.
His interest in entrepreneurial business ventures began in high school where he served as president of his Junior Achievement (JA) Company during 1969 and 1970. His skills and interest in nature were honed through his father’s work as a forester and conservationist.
His many years as a ski instructor earned him a position as a volunteer in the 2002 SLC Winter Olympics. Bolz was a drummer for the Northern Michigan rock band "The Patriots" in the mid-1960s. After high school graduation, he hitchhiked solo across America visiting every state park and national park along the way. He was a BSA troop leader and merit badge advisor (winter survival and citizenship in the nation).
Bolz is a third-generation Army veteran. He served during the final years of the Vietnam War Era. His father was in an artillery unit in Germany during WWII, and his grandfather served in France during WWI. His father-in-law served in the Estonian Army during WWII.
He has lived and worked in New York, Michigan, Utah, Germany, and Scotland. Daniel is a writer, inventor, teacher, and business entrepreneur. Since 1987 he has run his own management consulting company, Paradigm International.
Daniel and his wife Ingrid have been married for over forty years and are the proud parents of four daughters and a growing number of grandchildren.
Bolz began his professional career as an educator, teaching high school history, government, civics, and art. He also spent time as a junior high school administrator. He invented a stereo-electronics product called ‘PillowPhonix’ and was successful in marketing it on national television. He has consulted for private companies, educational organizations, and non-profit foundations.
Bolz has been involved with spearheading several monument projects spanning a decade, earning him the title ‘the monument guy’. He has consulted for monument design/build projects of patriotic and human recognition themes in the Western U.S. for university, civic, private, and non-profit organizations. He has presented monument projects to audiences in Vienna, Buenos Aires, and Estonia, plus several locations in the United States. In 1975 Daniel submitted an essay titled “Preservation of America” for the Freedoms Foundation while serving in the Army with NATO in Western Germany. He received presidential recognition from Gerald R. Ford for his essay.
Daniel’s university studies included art, political science, community education administration, and business administration and marketing. He attended Northern Michigan University for two years and later earned a B.A. and M.Ed. from BYU and an MBA from the University of Phoenix.
The 21st Century is upon us. America faces many new challenges. The strong forces of evil in powerful positions in our government wish to tear down our founding principles and fundamentally replace our God-given “inalienable rights” with “government given” rights.
This fundamental transformation of America towards Socialism must never be permitted to succeed. Much is needed to thwart that movement. Some patriots are engaged today in the cause to save our country. Their work will be highlighted and strengthened by erecting the Monument to Enduring Freedom. Once built and dedicated, extensive educational outreach programs will follow, all emphasizing our founding principles and American Exceptionalism.
Located on Americas’ West Coast, the Monument to Enduring Freedom will stand as a proud symbol of Americas’ purpose in the world; to let freedom ring in the heart of mankind. Together with the Statue of Liberty on the East Coast, these two pillars of liberty and freedom will forever declare Americas’ message that “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” are alive in the soul of our country and our people.
As a third-generation Army veteran, it is a sublime honor for me to pursue the building of this historic monument and organize the many educational outreach programs that will emanate from it. After a decade of research and work on an earlier iteration of this project (and other monuments successfully completed), the time is at hand to make it happen. A team of patriots is now needed to complete the task.
Join us for truth! Join us for freedom! Join us in building the Monument to Enduring Freedom!
Onward & Upward

“Many choose to live a life of dependency, exacerbated by excessive reliance on the government dole, which saps the lifeblood of individual accountability, and self-worth…
The message of America is one of patriotism, education to the rights of man, strengthened by the need to preserve and perpetuate freedom and democracy, all of which is inherently an act of individual accountability.
This then is the core essence of America; it is a message of hope and meaning for the common man, overarched by the eternal wisdom and love of the Creator.”
