Bill Chatfield most recently served as the Director of the U. S. Selective Service System from November of 2004 to May of this year, having been nominated by President George W.

Rene Eckert was Chairman, CEO & Partner at Boehme Filatex Inc. of Reidsville, NC from 1981 to 2007. He started the specialty chemical company with two partners in 1981.

"Rene Eckert has the business acumen and experience in product R & D, production scale up, and product manufacturing to help us bring Oxycyte(TM)-based products to the market. What Bill Chatfield brings to the table is the kind of Federal government experience and contacts, including the Department of Defense, that can be very helpful as we grow our Defense Medicine(TM) business plan. Our board and company will be stronger with their involvement."
