I had a friend that had cancer and he knew his days on this earth were numbered.
he commissioned me to build display cases for a lot of his military awards.
he faithfully served the military, both in active duty and after for over 45 years.
this is only a sample of the display cases I made for him that I have photos of.
He will be forever fondly remembered and deeply missed by all that knew him.

Being a former Bubble Head myself, this touches near the heart…

Your friend had quite the distinguished career and was both a CPO and a Mustang (navy chief who then is commissioned)....

Freedom isn’t free and the cold war wasn’t as cold as many think.
