Why I Joined the Military: I joined the military because I wanted to be a part of something that was greater than me and give back to my country. I also wanted the opportunity to travel and see our great country as well as others, while meeting like-minded new people.

Why I Joined Handmade by Heroes: I joined this company because I wanted to be a part of an organization that supports and provides opportunities to veterans that they wouldn’t otherwise have. I enjoy creating something with my hands, especially personalized or customized pieces.

Message to Customers: Thank you for supporting our nation’s veterans. I hope you enjoy this handmade product and I appreciate the opportunity to serve you!

My Favorite Sport Team and Why: My favorite sports team is the Seminoles. Right after high school I attended Florida State University for one year before joining the military and finding my direction. I love watching college athletes play for the love of the game. I enjoy the enthusiasm that these young men and women put forward and the competitive nature that excites us all.

Hi Joe! My husband surprised me with a Steelers bracelet made by you. It fits perfectly and I couldn’t love it more! I wanted to thank you for your service and for your time and creativity! Thank you again.
