  1. Saw this the other day... https://news.yahoo.com/robert-thacker-102-dies-survived-152257805.html
  2. Introduction A short while ago we were contacted by a good friend of the Ray family. She asked if a donation could be made to our community in the name of Mr. Ray, and I told her we'd be honored, and we would also like to accept the donation in memoriam and we would love to share to our members just who Mr. Ray was, with the family permission. The Family Man I cannot write better words than Mr. Ray's own grown child could, so here are the beautiful words. "There is no way I can put together the words to pay proper tribute to my Dad. I truly believe he was one
  3. Tools4vets & vets turn, Are 2 of many programs coming out to serve vets. Not all apply to wood but I’m sure someone hasn’t heard of these. Give them a look.
  4. Introduction A little-known benefit from the Interior Department gives military veterans with any disability rating from the Department of Veterans Affairs a free lifetime pass to national parks and other recreation areas, as well as discounts on some fees. The lifetime Access Pass is advertised as available to those who "have been medically determined to have a permanent disability ... does not have to be a 100 percent disability." Got a VA Rating? You Can Get a Free Lifetime National Parks Pass WWW.MILITARY.COM The pass could also get y
  5. Here are the bills that are being introduced according to militarybenefits.info/legislation-watch. There are a bunch of them in here so I'm going to post up the link and you guys can read through them. Some bills do go all the way back to 2018. https://militarybenefits.info/legislation-watch/
  6. Why a Host? Since this board was created over 10 years ago the Veterans Forum has been a big part of our community. But, the activity on the board has long been mediocre, and I know exactly why! Because most veterans are fine just not talking about their service. Typically their service was long ago, maybe on some far off land, and it was a time of their lives they'd rather keep to themselves, or perhaps they just felt really modest about their service and never felt their service was much to write home about. There are so many more reasons why, if we went into them here I'd never finish
  7. Dear folks, is there anyone here who is masterful at making walking canes? We have a disabled veteran who has contacted us, and needs a hand up. Our community is willing to pay you for your work. We will be gifting this walking assistant to our veteran. No disrespect is intended to our folks here, but I would like only a woodworker who builds canes and is masterful at your work, we can't risk a "one off" product with mistakes or a bad design style. Our disabled veterans deserve only the best. Please drop me a line here if you are interested in helping us with this

  10. If we must spend government money, tax payers money, this is one of the areas where it's best spent, paying back those who protect us and keep us safe from the bad actors of the world, and who have paid the price with their body and mind. A pat on the back where a pat on the back is due, fine job Mr. President.

  11. @eldonthemarine. I noticed your question in chat this morning. Right off the top of my head I am going to say that may be almost impossible to come up with a number and here is why I think that. There are over 20 million veterans in the United States, that is a whole lot of veterans. Woodworking is a main stream hobby/trade, to what degree would a veteran be considered a woodworker? The question may be as hard as asking how many veterans play golf, or drive a Chevy. You may be the first to compile a database! . Eldon, there are quiet a few o

  14. I am friends with Mark Wilson on Facebook, many of you may remember that Mark was one of the very first wounded veterans we helped raise a shop, acquire the tools and machinery he needed to work the wood, and our sponsors really came to the table to outfit his shop, he is a blind woodworker, injury received by shotgun blast to his face and blinded. My friend Mark posted this on Facebook, I replied: Amen amen amen my brother Mark! Just so ya'll know, he's doing fine, really well. Still working the wood, and going on trips all over the USA and participating in Wounded Warrior Games and

  16. On last nights news, I saw a video on a Texas WWII vet that is turning 100 on March 2. His birthday wish is to receive 100 birthday cards. Here is a link to another video on him that shows more information. This video shows he has received 2,500 cards. The video I saw last night shows he has received 10,000. https://abc13.com/society/family-asks-for-birthday-cards-for-wwii-vet-fighting-cancer/5119970/ While looking at this video, I found story on 92 year old vet in Oklahoma who is battling cancer. His birthday is April 17. He enjoys getting mail but does not get very much. ht

  18. At a local restaurant that we visit regularly , one of the waitresses there told us a story this week about her dad. He is 94. He was 19 when he fought in the Battle of the Bulge. If any of you have seen the movie "Monument Men" he is one of those who went to get the gallery of hidden arts that Hitler stole. It was important to get there and remove the art before the Russians got there because Russia would have claimed the works for themselves. He was among the men who carried the art out and got away just before the Russians arrived. She said that she never heard the story until a couple week

  20. You just have to appreciate this one. Young people forget that we old people had a career before we retired...... Charley, a new retiree-greeter at Wal-Mart, just couldn't seem to get to work on time. Every day he was 5, 10, 15 minutes late. But he was a good worker, really tidy, clean-shaven, sharp-minded and a real credit to the company and obviously demonstrating their "Older Person Friendly" policies. One day the boss called him into the office for a talk. "Charley, I have to tell you, I like your work ethic, you do a bang-up job when you finally get here; but your being l
