Honoring American Soldiers:
A Woodworking Shop in Afghanistan

 
Soldiers Woodworking in Afghanistan Soldiers Woodworking in Afghanistan
Dear Highland Woodworking,

It's not beautiful, fancy, or by any means a work of art, but this little old woodshop means so much to a great bunch of soldiers who come here to take their minds off the fact that we're in Afghanistan. This is our home away from home.

The shop is located on Kandahar Airfield in the Kandahar province of Afghanistan. Downtime is what makes it so hard being here, and what better way to take your mind off being away from your family than doing something you really enjoy doing.

I am very grateful being a part of this wonderful place and helping set it up and keeping it up. We have spent countless hours here building extra shelves, bunk beds, and many other items to make life easier here for soldiers.
