Joan Jett – Long term military supporter receives special gift!
Owner of Woodshop Specialties, LLC, Jamie Fowler, custom built an American Flag Military Challenge Coin Display, that was recently presented to Joan Jett, of Joan Jett & the Blackhearts. Jamie was contacted by Rod Hottle, formerly the project director for the Armed Forces Entertainment Network, and long time friend of Joan Jett.
This project was presented as a special thanks to Joan Jett for all her support of our military members. She has entertained as part of the USO and Armed Forces Entertainment. Joan is an environmentalist, and having the display made from materials that didn’t have to be cut down just to make it was important. Rod mentioned making it out of the beetle-kill, and knew that Jamie was the guy to build it. Of course, it looked great even without the stain on it. However, after putting on the stain, the blues and grays of the wood really came to light.
Jamie stated, “When you are working on a project like this, as you are putting piece after piece together and watching it all become a completed project, there were times you stand back and look at it and smile,’yep, this is going to look nice’!” He finished by saying, “It really was an honor to be asked, and then have it presented to her.”
Joan has a couple hundred challenge coins from all the places she has been, and what better way to display them.
