Hey maj... I won’t say nice job as I’ve probably said that 100 times before.

With the number of these boxes you’ve made, I reckon there are more boxes than flags in the entire Croatia.

Nicely done Ivan.

Seems like everyone who can is leaving that part of the world, sad. Your projects bring happiness to some.

Good morning. It is always nice to wake up to lumber jock project that was built while I slept. Like little elves helping the cobbler. As a former military person, I have several of these flags cases, with flag of course. I understand what these will mean to troops rotating out. Nice job, good sir.
