Topic tags/keywords: afganiston help


I just wanted to point folks to the post by TexasDawg. He is stationed in Afganistan and is building simple things with materials and tools on hand to improve his and his mates living conditions. You can see his latest project and comments at:

Responding to a question he commented that anyone who has some “old chisels or carving tools laying around that they don’t use, we will put them to good use here.”

His address is:

Steven Deputy
APO, AE 09356

I know I am going to look around my shop tonight and see what I can find to send him. I encourage others to do the same.

Gary, I don’t have any chisels or carving tools personally (my few “spares” aren’t worth sending – as they could only be used as glorified pry bars)....but I would be more then happy to help defray the cost of sending them to him….If anyone who has some items to send him needs/would like some help with the shipping costs let me know and I will help in that department.

I will also ask around the folks I know and see if I can collect some tools to send….

We can also set up an account at an internet bank or such for folks like me that don’t have the hardware…but want to help in some fashion – pick up the costs to package and send the items?

Have your say...
