Soldier

We featured David Muir on our Facebook page earlier this month, which received an overwhelming positive response. We asked him a few questions about himself and how he got interested in crocheting.

1. Tell me a little bit about yourself, like where you're from and why you decided to join the military.

I'm originally from Easton, Maryland but I call Pooler, Georgia home now. I joined the Army because of the “adventure” and "awesome toys" - eventually it became more than that. I worked with a group of individuals that became my great friends, and my family.
