That is fantastic man. I am a vet, recently medically retired after serving over nine years; 2004-2008 USMC 2008-2013 USA as a combat engineer and served 3 tours in iraq and afghanistan. I am now going to school and putting everything together to open my own business, a wood shop. I make shadow boxes, award displays, stuff like that. BUT i am teaching myself how to do all of this thru books, videos, advice, and a lot of trial and error. I have not heard of the freedom pens, but i can tell you that anytime i got something in the mail that someone made for me, someone they will prolly never see, it made me feel pretty damn good, considering the circumstances.
