DeWALT Power tools Outfits Lone Survivor Foundation Retreat Facility on Bolivar Peninsula, TX with Workshop for Veterans 


Beaumont, Texas March 30, 2016:   Wounded service members and their family members who participate in future Lone Survivor Foundation (LSF) healing retreats on the Bolivar Peninsula, Texas facility will have access to a fully equipped, wood working shop donated by DEWALT Tools.

Members of DEWALT and Coastal Welding Supply of Beaumont, Texas met recently with LSF Executive Director Terry Jung of Houston, TX and the retreat’s builder and facility manager Brian Byrom, of the Bolivar Peninsula firm, Brint Construction, to determine the needs of service members attending the four day retreats held throughout the year.  DEWALT and Coastal Welding Supply, business partners and long- time supporters of veteran programs, thought a workshop would be an ideal opportunity to give back to our service men and women, along with their family members, who have given so much for each of us. On March 24, three DEWALT trucks loaded with power tools, work benches, tool chests and other donated equipment were delivered to the retreat facility and installed by members of the Lone Survivor Foundation, Brint Construction, Coastal Welding Supply and DEWALT.

DEWALT’s Chris Feifel, Houston Account Manager, along with Field Marketing Coordinator, Tom Diekemper and Sales Coordinator, Josh Tucker delivered and helped install the tools. Feifel shared his excitement to be involved with such a project and stated, “We are honored to be able to provide the retreat and its attendees the very best wood working project experience we can.” DEWALT Regional Construction Manager, Rick Misenheimer, who first met with Jung and Coastal representatives sent a congratulatory message and shared, ”Our team provided the necessary work stations to be handicap accessible and mobile so that retreat attendees can enjoy working both inside the shop and outside on the patio.”      

Terry Jung, unable to attend the delivery, sent a message of thanks, “The Lone Survivor Foundation is extremely excited to have DEWALT and Coastal Welding Supply as supporters. The workshop will be a great addition to the LSF Bolivar facility that will become a unique element of retreat activities for the service members. We see the workshop as a means of allowing retreat participants to work together while building peer to peer bonds in an empowering environment.” 

J.C. “Chuck” Mazoch, President of Coastal Welding Supply, and his team spearheaded the project for LSF and is also grateful to DEWALT for their overwhelming and generous contribution. “A special thank you to DEWALT, who has been a great Coastal business partner, “said Mazoch, as he looked around the tool filled room. “With their support, we were able to facilitate the supply of tools required to create the Bolivar Lone Survivor Foundation workshop.”
