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,
Just received my 22 bracelet. As a Veteran who has tried suicide in the past, I’m trying to get the word out. With the bracelet you made for me, I think it will help. Thank you very much.

Hi Joe, thanks for making my Blue Lives Matter key chain. It means a lot to me as my husband is a retired police officer. He also was in the Air Force during the Viet Nam War and worked on the airplanes. I have your card on my desk and share it with people when I show my key chain. Thanks again for your service and the work you are doing with Handmade By Heroes.
