    • Woodcraft Encourages Volunteers to Participate In the 12th Turn for Troops National Turn-a-Thon   11/06/2015

      Send a personal thank-you message to an American serving in the U.S. Military by turning a pen in Woodcraft’s 12th Turn for Troops National Turn-a-Thon the weekend of Nov. 6-7. Pens are distributed to American military personnel on active duty or recovering in a rehabilitation center. Contact the Woodcraft store nearest you for more details. American military personnel continue to serve around the world in many foreign nations and often in harm’s way. Many more are recovering in rehabilitation centers from service-related injuries and issues.  Sailors deployed on the USS Carl Vinson received several of the wood pens handcrafted during the 2014 Turn for Troops events, as seen here admiring the workmanship of their new writing instruments.
