There was a letter to the editor in the paper about how the USMM song was not played during a celebration. I recall a couple of years ago the US Coast Guard song was not played during a VD celebration. Many folks think the songs should be played while some don't. The USMM had the highest casualty ratio during WWII, were ordered into service, and were considered part of the US military. They played a vital role in the war effort. I am always amazed that some folks seem reluctant to celebrate veterans.



side note: I can't correct the "Us" to US in the topic title.

I'll fix that Hat, and thanks for the slice of history.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
