ECHO Carving Team will Carve
“IN HONOR OF ALL SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN
AROUND THE WORLD”

A Thank You from the AFRH Director

Mike Bihlmaier, Mark Colp, and Jason Emmons of the ECHO Chain Saw Carving Team will be carving at The Armed Forces Retirement Home in Washington D.C. in a patriotic chain saw carving challenge on May 14-16, 2010. The event takes place during Armed Forces Day weekend.

The sculpture themes the carvers will carve on the AFRH-W grounds will be pre-chosen by residents, who will then vote for their favorite sculpture as the “People’s Choice”. The final sculptures will be placed on permanent display on AFRH-W grounds.

The Armed Forces Retirement Home, just down the street from the White House, has for more than a century and a half housed veteran airmen, Marines, sailors and soldiers enjoying the finest lifestyles in their retirement. The Home retirement community houses 900+ residents with four levels of care (Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Support and Long Term Care). For more information about the AFRH and its mission to fulfill our nation’s commitment to its veterans, please visit www.afrh.gov.
