Here is another cane that I made for a wounded veteran. I am honored to be part of a group of wood carvers who make canes for American soldiers that have been wounded while serving their country in Iraq or Afghanistan. In general, these soldiers are Purple Heart recipients. They are asked if there is anything special that they would like included on the cane. Usually, it is things like unit patches, Combat Infantry Badges and such. This veteran asked for copies of tattoos that he has on his arm.

Thanks for being a part of this project, we can’t do enough to thank our veterans … especially those hurt while protecting us.

Thanks for all of the comments. By the way, there are no inlays on the cane, everything is carved into the shaft and then painted.
