This blacksmithing class was another fantastic time with a great group! Three veterans and one staff member from OTF, SRU had one cadre, and three active-duty members attend to learn about the fundamentals of this ancient process. Ron Hardman and his staff were top-notch, ensuring the veterans were in for a great class. They took their time to explain how to do everything and made sure each participant was safe. Blacksmithing instills in veterans a sense of warrior spirit—as to make something from raw material and turn it into a functional weapon. Everyone had a wonderful experience.
