Hmmmm --- very good idea!

Doing something with my hands, building things, have been therapy for me all my life - I'm not a vet.

Thanks for the post.  A family member of mine is working with Vets and PTSD.  She's spent many tours in the sandbox along with my cousin.

This sounds like a program that should expand to many other states.
