ABOUT THE DECK FOR A SOLDIER PROGRAM
NADRA launched its Deck For a Soldier
program in 2007 when an inquiry came across the NADRA website. Sergeant Thomas placed an inquiry to NADRA member, Sawdust, Ltd.
Of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma through www.NADRA.org, in anticipation of scheduling a deck build
when she returned home.
Here, the idea of building a "Deck for a Soldier"
was born. This is a community effort that expresses our appreciation for the service and dedication of the men and women of our armed forces.
"This is the first time someone has ever done something like this for me. This is truly a blessing. I believe that if you give, God will bless you, and he surely does."
