Freedoms Landing. "The final cause"

Ok so here it is. Folks I was given very scant information. It was because of my focus on dedicated projects.  This young gent was the cause for my eagle of (correction) AMVETS POST 94 UNITED PA. His name is Brady. He was diagnosed with sarcoma after his leg hurt while playing hockey. My eagle was for auction. I didn't know he was excited to meet me. We talked for quite a bit.  Then I put my hand on his newly operated leg with his cadaver and told him to fight! I told him just how brave he is. He thanked me for my service. I told him with pleasure and I'd do it again for him. What a soul in front of me. His determination his auora his motivation his pride. My friends this is beyond ANY superbowl championship, world cup, trophy, you name it. This picture is everything to me. I told him WIN! What I raised him in funds with just a simple carving will help his med bill. A SFC won the eagle. They were crying when I delivered it. I got a standing ovation that lasted for some time with ppl yelling .... AIRBORNE! RANGERS! ENGINEERS! OORAH AND HOOAH! you name it. I'm quite stunned that this happened and I have been questioned by businesses and ppl like Harley Davidson to do some stuff. I think you all know how I feel right now......... lets do some carvin!!! As for Brady.... I firmly think he is gonna make it!!!!!

Thank you John.  I never would have guessed this in a million yrs. This is a moment in that photo you get a piece of mind. No politics in the pic. It was American as it gets. The standing ovation was a moment too. I'm beyond excited because someone picked me to get it done and as usual nothing but flawless. Cant wait till the next piece whether its a cause or customer.  The challenge is real. I had a Vietnam vet ask me to make a carving above his head stone. Man I'm truly shocked...

Thank you lew. I've never felt a force like that day. His drive is like mine. I was told there were two phenomenal warriors in that room. Thats the street talk I'm hearing. I've heard many times because of what I'm doing the repayment will be great. For me its the looks on faces and the smiles because in such a harsh world we need to quit being so crass. That boy by far I'd go to combat with him any given day. I was also invited any time to post 94.... no membership just show up.....such a little town with huge hearts!

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!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

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.
