As a vet, veteran's projects are very special for me. Recently, I was given the honor of building a display case for the widow of a recently deceased Korean War vet. He purchased a pillow case when he was in basic training and never gave it to her. She found the unopened box after his death and I received the privilege of building a case for it. It was pretty much free gratis but it sure was an honor to do it.
I am very saddened personally, one of my all time heroes, Lt. General Hal Moore dies today. Many of you may of known of him before the popular Mel Gibson Movie "We Were Soldiers" but for me, I did not know about him until that gritty and realistic movie came to the big screen. LTC (rank at the time) Hal Moore, historians and the men who were there said Mel Gibson nailed it, that was Hal Moore. After seeing the movie I immediately researched this man and found out he also was in the Korean War as well. Knowing this legend is no longer among the living leaves a void in our living history that is passing away each and every day at an alarming rate. I have this to say, we owe our lives as Americans and our way of life to the men like LTG Hal Moore and all those who served under these giant leaders. We'll always and forever be in your debt Sir. Rest in Peace, I know you have a lot of brothers in heaven waiting on your arrival, my gosh, can you imagine the reception up there? The men he lead, the men who fought and died while in his command, they were proud to be with him in battle, and I am sure they are proud to have him once again in their midst.

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.
