    Good day everyone!
    I am looking for any and all US military veterans that are currently faceters or interested in faceting (all lapidary arts actually). I have been operating my business, American Cut Gemstones, for some time now but I am finally building a website. The mission is to showcase and support US Veteran Lapidaries. I intend to have quarterly give aways, discounts and support for all Veterans. The site will include a Veterans Members section for all of us to communicate, support each other and maybe tell some sea stories! I hope to get enough Veterans interested to be able to showcase the “Veteran of the Quarter” on the site and offer their wares for sale if they would like. Please reply with any interest. I will be happy to share my phone number with you as well if you like the idea and want to be part of the endeavor. I appreciate your time and attention.
    Very Respectfully,
    Don Williams, USN Retired

    Nice idea, Don. Although I’m neither active nor retired, I am a US Army veteran and I appreciate that you want to recognize those who served.

    That is a great point Alan! I am not trying to limit the types of Veterans… My apologies! I edited my post so hopefully ALL Veterans know they are welcome!

    Nice idea! Kind of like Al, I spent 10 years in the Army, so I didn’t retire. If I ever get around to photographing my loose stones, maybe I’ll get in touch about selling them through your site. But now, I have a contest stone that’s due soon haha.
