Profile Information

How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?
From my son James Bush, Mojo CBG

My home town.

I was raised in Bartow, FL. On my 17th birthday I enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps. I served for 22 years. Went to Korea in 1953 and Vietnam in 1967.

Retired in 1969 at Marine Corps Air Station, Yuma, AZ Then went to work for State Farm Insurance Companies as a  Auto Estimator.
I worked in Miami and Gainesville, FL, then transferred to Phoenix, AZ. I retired from State Farm in 1989 and moved to Abilene, TX where I now live.
I will add pictures of my Cigar Box Guitars when I get some more made. The pictures that I added were pictures of me when I was in the U.S. Marine Corps and some pictures of the planes that I loader bombs on in Korea. Also a B-1 that we have here in Abilene, TX.

As soon as I saw airplanes and Marine pictures, I thought of my Dad, then I see some old pictures of him, yep that's my dad. Welcome aboard Dad, I love you. Now start building cbg's and post your pictures of them, This site is for CBG's and  related material, try not to post anything not related to this site, that's why there is Facebook for other interests.
