Patriot Woodworker Organization Outfits Shop for Visually-Impaired Veteran

Article by Wood IQ Staff

The veteran, Specialist E-4 Mark Wilson of Palmyra, Missouri, a former combat engineer who served two tours of duty as an explosives expert tasked with locating and disarming improvised explosive devices (IEDs), was injured in a non-service-connected firearms accident. Wilson, an avid woodworker even before his injury, now makes an array of products he will shortly begin selling through garage sales, flea markets, newspaper ads, and a website.

To date, Wilson has received a dust collector, band saw, and table saw from Laguna Tools. He has also received a collection of woodworking clamps from Bessey Tools of North America and wood turning lathe tools from Easy Wood Tools.

The Patriot Woodworker organization was founded in 2010 and remains strongly committed to helping veterans who have selflessly given to our country since September 11, 2001 and have returned home with serious injuries. The organization accepts contributions of woodworking tools, as well as financial contributions. The Patriot Woodworker may be reached at (951) 570-9711, via email at thepatriotwoodworker@verizon.net, or by mail at 977 Sussex Road, San Jacinto, CA 92583.
