Younger Marine

This Marine served in two elite units, my old 1st ANGLICO and 2nd ANGLICO. His now a leader in the annual Toys for Tots effort on Oklahoma City.

Over a year ago, the son of an old friend was having serious issues after his honorable discharge from the Marine Corps. I reached out for support, and right away this man stepped up to offer contacts and resources.

I began work on his stick today. Unlike the kiln-dried Bois d'Arc (Osage Orange) staves I've used in the past, this is a thoroughly dried post. The first wood exposed is that characteristicly orange sapwood. Like the staves, it is a challenge to saw, and prone to damaging the draw knife.
