A few weeks ago, I posted a marine logo intarsia that I made for my cousin, who retired from the corps in 1998 after 25 years of service. The intarsia celebrated his successful double-lung transplant. Two of his sons are also career marines and he asked if I could make each of them matching logos for Christmas gifts. I agreed to do them, even though I’m Navy to the core. The two appear similar, but if you look close, you’ll see that they are different. The woods are cherry, oak, walnut, Osage orange, pine and ebony. The rope is dyed nylon. Marines say “Semper fi.” Sailors say, “Calm winds and following seas.” I think sailors are much more poetic than Jar-heads. (LOL)

-- Cats, beer and wood...perfect.

You do realize, as a Navy man, that the anchor on the Marines’ emblem is “fouled” by the rope, an allusion to the fact the the Marines are the Navy’s “fighting force.” Just a simple comment from a 20-year Air Force veteran. Aim High! ;^)

-- Live to tell the stories, they sound better that way.

Have your say...
