Here is a photo of me in the bush in Viet Nam, February, 1971.  In the background are the rapids of the Dong Nai River.  This is close to the to the II-III Corps boundary near the south edge of the Central Highlands.  The hardest thing for me when I look at this is to realize that it was nearly 50 years ago.

U.S. Marine Combat Engineer.  94-06.  I've always loved making stuff,  I've got a pretty good wood shop and wanted to expand on my skills and make knives because I was never happy with the ones I bought.

Thank you for serving Chad. Sappers Lead! Just imagine a combat engineer liking to make things. Boy will wonders never cease? 

It's funny, one of the largest demographics of knife makers are wood workers who weren't happy with the available knives or prices. You're in good company!

Former USAF, Security Police Law Enforcement Specialist, Military Working Dog Handler. Bleh that's a mouthful nowadays. I went from Texas to Korea to Texas to Korea, then decided I didn't want to go back to Texas and got out.

'76 - '79, IHAWK Missile Launcher Crewman 3/59 ADA, Hanau and Butzbach, FRG. Got to Battalion HQ, and when they found out I could touch type 14wpm, I became the equivalent of a paralegal.  Never shot at, and an otherwise undistinguished tour of duty during the Cold War.
