A Chicago woman I know recently came up with a fantastic idea, which calls for any of us who build cigar box guitars to share the experience with service men or women, who may be in a war zone or stateside.
She is attempting to acquire names and mailing addresses for GIs, which she will share.
I like the idea and I hope to be able to make contact with a serviceman/woman who wants to learn to play, and I will provide the CBG. It's the least I can do to show my appreciation for the sacrifice they are making to protect me in a world filled with radicals who are persistent in their violent mission to destroy our country.
This guitar is the creation of a fellow who calls himself
TinyGuitars (his moniker on CigarBoxNation),
and he plans to share it with a GI.
If you know of someone who is serving our country, or who is recuperating from war-related injuries, and you feel they may find some enjoyment from a little instrument, which produces big sound, please share your thoughts with me, and I'll take it from there.
