A while back a friend with the Combat Infantryman’s Badge asked me to make him a pen with the CIB and his unit designation on it for a unit reunion.

That led to a number of other similar pens.

I went to The Virtual Wall and found there only one person whom I knew who had died in ‘Nam. So I made a pen for his sister who was in my graduating class. The Nam campaign ribbon on that pen is decal on cherry. So it is woodworking.

There is no wood on the other pen.

Great pens, and even better idea about the CIB. Gives me an idea for using campaign ribbons…
