I used to have a huge garden in OH. A really old farmer plowed and disced it for me. He died and I got a new guy. He used an 8 foot rototiller and it did a fine job. He loved to talk and when he was done, we did a lot of that. We became good friends and he never mentioned WWII. I had not seen him for about a month and was concerned. I went to his house and we talked. He said it was easier to talk to another combat vet. He was one of the GIs that landed on Normandy and survived. He was among the ones liberated France. He said that they gave away candy to kids and food to adults. He hadn't been home because he took a freedom flight with other vets to Normandy. He was one of the few that didn't need assistance walking. He said that as they went thru a town, an old lady came over and hugged him tightly, wouldn't let go. When she did and looked at him, she told him she was one of the kids that he handed candy too. He stood about 6 foot 7 with a large nose, easy to remember. They hugged and cried for a long time.
Who We Are
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.
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.
