I will be the banker. You can participate by check, money order or PayPal. Send me a PM

and I will send you  my mailing address, cell phone number and PayPal information. I will

also start a thread acknowledging donors unless you wish to be anonymous.  I will not be

posting the amount donated, so whatever you would like to contribute is GREATLY appreciated.

p.s. Please include your screen name so i can post it rather than your real name.

This is a very real and meaningful way to thank a soldier.  Just look at what we've been able to do so far!

I will donate my time, cork, epoxy and thread for another build.

 

I wasn't going to ask, but I am totally stoked you want to be a part of this. Thank you again, amigo.

 

On another note, when I first got into this rod building thing a couple of years ago, i bugged Scott unmercifully with questions. He was always gracious enough to take time to give me detailed answers to every dumb-arse question I could conceive. I would not have made the progress I have without his long distance assistance. And I hope , one of these days, to be able to post pics of a rod I've built that looks half as good as what he routinely puts out.

 

To all the Warriors who will be receiving rods in the future: and I hope there will be many; if you get  rod from me, know that you got the best I can do, and I know it will serve you well. If you get one from Scott, well, you will have received an heirloom.

Wow.  Thank you.  As nice as some think my work is, there are guys out there doing stuff I can only dream of!

 

Doesn't matter how good you are at what you do; there's always somebody better.

I can't produce the artist pieces like some of you guys, but I'm happy to do what I can. I will be honored to help on the next go round.

I personally want to thank everyone involved in this. As I told Kent, it makes me proud to be part of a group that goes beyond a simple 'Thank You' when it comes to recognizing the efforts of those that have served by honoring them with a special gift.  If you plan on doing this on a regular basis, please count me in for whatever you may need. All you have to do is ask.

@Ben Miller Because the time, effort & personal touch by all involved, can make All the difference.

Thank you, all of you who have contributed. I hoped, this time around, we could make this an ongoing process. And, it's looking like that could very well happen.

 

And, I want you all to know, that as long as contributions keep coming, I will keep donating my time and supplies. I will build as many rods as you all want to fund. What else is an old, retired professor good for anyway?

I just want to say Thank You to everyone involved with this. Kent told me I am the first one to receive one of these. What a work of art it is. It's almost too pretty to fish. I served 16 years in the Air Force and work for the Army as a civilian now. I've never had a day pass in my adult life that I wasn't serving in some capacity and it will probably stay that way until I retire for good. I will definitely be contributing to this project as well as a pay it forward. There is no way I would have the memories, friendships, education, and what I consider an amazing life without the military. Again, Thank You all so much.

Thanks Lonnie. I enjoy being able to contribute, in my own small way. I've been building rods for two years now, and I'm not that good at it. But, I am getting better; a little bit at a time.

All of ya’ll are doing a great thing with this!  I’m retired Army and am blessed to be in a position to start building rods at a buddy’s local bait & tackle shop here in Muldrow, Oklahoma.  I want to get involved but I am ‘no s**t’ just starting, waiting on my first kit from Mudhole lol.  I’ll keep up with ya’ll and hopefully I can contribute something to my brothers & sisters in arms.
