Default First Production Run ( For Vets)

Today I committed to making 30 pens to be included in care packages for service men and women. A coworker of mine puts holiday packages together for active duty service men and women who are alumni from Edison High School. I am looking forward to getting started on this project. I will be ordering the kits this weekend and turning them from purple heart I salvaged from park benches from work. Brian

Good on ya! I was able to turn 21 pens last year. This year I'm hoping to turn more than that.

I look forward to seeing a picture of your pens. I'm quite confident these fine men and women serving will enjoy them for a very long time to come. Good for you taking on this noble cause.

Thank you for taking this project on. Our pen group just finished 130 pens for the Honor Flight this month.

I've gotten in with the local Hunters for Heros chapter. I'm doing 5-10 a month so every vet hunter gets a pen.
