  1. Attention On Deck ! The Department of the Navy issued orders today to Adm. S. Claus, recalling him to active duty, with a report date of Dec. 24, 2019. A reservist, with 1,742 years of service, this Naval Aviator specializes in vertical delivery of high-value items. He is carrier flight deck qualified. He is also a Public Affairs Officer. Also recalled, were Lt. Cmdr. Dasher, Master Chief Dancer, Senior Chief Prancer, Lt. Vixen, Cmdr. Comet, Lt. Cmdr. Cupid, AW1 Donner, and AW1 Blitzen, Individual Augmentees from the Naval Reserve. Ensign Rudolph is also authorized to report for d
  2. I am finally fully retired. Got the letter today. Now to figure out all the stuff that goes with it :), i.e. tricare vs VA etc.
  3. I went to the orange BBS for some stuff and asked for a veterans discount as I have for years. They told me I have to register at the service desk. In the past, I showed them my driver's license that has the word "Veteran" on it from previous verification with the DMV. The company has employed SheerID, a 3rd party verification service. You go online and enter your name, address, email, telephone number, birth date, and number of toes on your left foot. They call up your DD 214 which contains your SSN, and in 2-3 days, you're in. I refused enrollment. I have enough exposure to personal info fro
  4. While perusing a couple sites this morning I happened on this page within the Defense.gov website. The page is a well laid out dedication to the victims of the attack on the Pentagon. Click on a letter at the right column, and the names and biography appears at main page. The names represent those victims on the ground, and on the air plane. I started to go through the names and images, but I had to pull away, for many reasons, but I just thought I'd share it here. If you go to the "B" list, you'll see Bernard Brown, he was just 11 years old, goodness. http://archive.defense.gov
  5. The Gold Star Family Home Program, launched in September 2018, honors the legacy of those who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving our country. The Foundation will provide a 100 percent mortgage-free home to surviving spouses with young children. The Foundation is committed to raising $250 million to provide 1,000 homes to Gold Star Families.
  6. My son and I took advantage of free day at our local air museum. They had an open house, open to all who wanted to come, free entry, so hey, we woke up Saturday morn and son said, hey Dad, wanna go see the air field museum, it's a free day, and I said, "Son, you're playin my fiddle, lets go!". So we jumped into the car and headed out to March Air Field Museum and had a wonderful morning, followed up by some fast food on the way back home, burgers and fries with my boy, what a great way to start our Saturday morning! Side note: One of the images you'll see my son standing next to Un
  7. Since this is a forum with a heavy emphasis on patriotism I figured we should have something for those who served in the military. These are the first two I tried. Was also thinking of possibly combining something like this with a bottom "tail" that could be carved with someone's name, dates of service, places of service, or anything one would want. These are cut from 15" blanks. Sizes can be increased to 18 or even 24 inch I would think.
  8. Introduction Our very own Patriot Woodworker John Mordus, or better known in our circles as @honesttjohn, is an artist on CNC (computer numerical control) woodworking. John was one of the first CNC woodworkers to join our community and helped crowd our new CNC forums. One of John's favorite creations he performs on his CNC machine are the military plaques he enjoys carving. You can see his CNC gallery featuring these very plaques here at: John's Contribution John contacted us and asked us if we could use any of his work to benefit our current project for our Gold St

    To Recognize Service

    From the album: Patriot Work

    These are quite popular with spouses, parents, and kids. If I hear a child who sees and admires it, I'll just give them one to give as a gift to their Dad.

  20. Thank you for joining us. Below is the Military Challenge Coin Display as described by The Patriot Woodworker network. This is a design that we drew up with the help of designs seen all over the web, it is easy to build, most folks have the tools that are necessary to build it, and the finishing process is quite simple. If you don't have the tools that I am using, your sure to find a way around that, as this is as I said, very simple to build. This basic display is 12" long, 4 1/2" deep, 1 1/8" tall at the front, and 1 7/8" tall at the rear. The grooves are 1/4" wide and 5/16"" deep. The beaut
  21. While not the greatest discount...probably would cover shipping for small items...at least they're thinking about our men & women who've served! Grizzly Offers Military Discount
