It is tradition that when a fellow Sailor or Marine transfers to a new command or back to civilian life that his/her shipmates present a plaque or gift to commemorate their time at that command. I was recently asked to design and make a plaque for a Marine who is a firefighter. This is what I came up with. I made the plaque and my wife installed the memorabilia. It was a team effort. The plaque is approximately 18” x 18” and made from cherry wood. The finish is a custom brown stain with clear lacquer.

Smitty – I have been in San Diego since 1985 and have seen many changes. I too remember when it was NAS Miramar and I am still not used to MCAS Miramar. They have some cool stuff there. The OV-22 Osprey is fun to watch. They still do the Airshow there every year.
