Member Ricky Martin has list of FOURTEEN soldiers who want instruments.  There is a roster on the group of folks who've offered to build.  If you are on that list, this is your big chance!

Contact member Ricky Martin and pick yourself a soldier.   He'll give you all their contact info.

The soldiers have even offered to pay postage to get the instruments over there, so there is nothing holding you back.

CONTACT RICKY!

It doesn't look like the people at Walter Reed care enough to bother to respond to my inquiry. I have sent Ricky a message.
Thanks, Iggy! Ricky is swamped!

The specific list of soldiers has arrived, and they mostly want 6 strings or 4 strings.

Please check your stash, or see what wood is on the shelf and help out a soldier. These servicemen are not scheduled to return home until the end of next year -- that's a long time with no guitar!
Greeting Cigar Box Nation,
My name is SFC Sean Connor and I am currently stationed in Afghanistan. I am one of the soldiers on Ricky's list and thanks to Matt I will recieve my first ever 1 String Diddly Bow CBG. I want to thank you all for supporting troops like myself it means a great deal when we are so far from home. I look forward to playing the CBG, I have never played an instrument in my life, well besides the attempt to play the spoons with my Grandfather as a kid, yeah that didn't go over so well. Anyhow, once I received an email from Matt I became interested and decided to become a member of Cigar Box Nation. In Massachusetts, where I am from, I can't say I have heard of a CBG but when I return home I will share the knowledge.

Thank you again for your support and I may be interested in working with someone to customize a military specific CBG. Something that depicts Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom for which I both served. Take care and God bless.

Your Friend,
SFC Sean Connor

P.S.
I will take pics once I recieve my CBG and post if that is acceptable.
