Bad Axe Giveaway for Veterans

From the Bad Axe Facebook page:


VETERANS DAY GIVEAWAY!!!
One of our customers, who wishes to remain anonymous, has purchased three Bad Axe saws (12” Stiletto, 12” Hybrid DT/Small Tenon & 16” Tenon), asking for them to be given away to three veterans (one saw per veteran), in honor of Veterans Day 2015.
Here’s how it works: if you are an honorably-discharged veteran, email mark@badaxetoolworks.com with a .jpg or .pdf of your honorable discharge or your DD Form 214 along with your contact information, including shipping address, email and phone number. The Bad Axe team will hold a lottery, and select three names. Then we send you the saw. It’s that simple.
All three saws are in their basic configuration: hickory handle, black-oxided sawback and brass fasteners.
The deadline for submissions is 2200 CST 11 Nov 2015. We will conduct the drawing on the following day, and announce the awardees at 1800 CST.
Salute!


Comments say active duty are also eligible.


I'm not affiliated with Bad Axe, but I love our veterans and hope one of my fellow Woodnetters win one.

Mods, can we put this in the general woodworking forum too?
If it wasn't for last minute, nothing would get done.

It's my thumb so I'll hit it if I want to!

That's very generous of the customer who made these available for the giveaway, and BadAxe, of course.

That's truly awesome. Please extend my thanks to the generous person who is funding this. As a veteran, (and I'm not entering the drawing so someone more deserving can win), I appreciate the many ways people find to say "thanks". It was a privilege to serve.

Not that I don't trust him, but I am a bit leary on sending out my DD214. Might have to do some censoring and rescanning.

It might be a good idea to obscure your SSN.

I would like to do this but Mills County has my DD214 form and it would take a few days to go and get it and then send it to him.

Do you think he will wait?

Thanks for posting

Arlin,

Not sure what service you were in, but it was the Army, you should be able to go here and get your DD214
