NADRA Deck for A Soldier®/Deck for A Hero® Pledge Form 


New Jersey:  We have approved an application in Bloomingdale, NJ.  This is for a veteran with a son who has muscular dystrophy.  Their deck is in bad shape and needs to be replaced.  This veteran has done two tours in Iraq and has been commander of VFW and American Legion posts.  He has attended over 2000 veteran funerals.

Minnesota:  This project is in Minneapolis and was approved by the committee and local members.  This build is unique because it is for a Non-profit organization, Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans, that runs a home for veterans called a Structured Independent Living Facility.  

*Important Note: This is a program for current NADRA members. To continue and make a pledge, you must be a current member of NADRA.  

Chair: Bruce Verblaauw  Committee: Joey Matthews, Vincent Carrubba, Michael Ryan and Rick Wooton

 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, 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 & dedication of the men and women of our armed forces.

NADRA's Deck for a Soldier® program has grabbed the attention of Deck Builders, Manufacturers, Suppliers, Dealers and Distributors around the country. It seems that benevolence is contagious. It's a small way our industry can give back to those that give us so much - our freedom!

This is a great opportunity to get your name and products out in the field and in the hands of North America’s best deck builders. Think of the pride you will have when that Soldier can tell his friends and family who donated labor and materials to support them.
