A Note of Thanks from Kandahar Airfield, Afghanistan

AAW received the following message via our website "Contact Us" form: "Hello. I received one of the donated wooden pens that were sent out and distributed here at Kandahar Airfield in Afghanistan. Many Soldiers and civilians who are serving and supporting our country here also received them and needless to say, we all appreciated them. I just wanted to send back a word of thanks for taking the time and effort to have made, donated and sent these out. The pen that I received had a card with it that stated it was handcrafted by Steve Young and referenced Woodcraft and the Southwest Idaho Woodturners Association (Boise, ID). Thank you for your support, on behalf of myself and all of the other recipients here. Have a good day. Sincerely, Lawrence A. Olea" (9/22/2014)
