I ask everyone before they leave what they want for a gift. They’ve all seen what I’ve done before and they NEVER choose something that’s been done. My buddy said he wanted an ammo can. He saw it and said, “I thought you were just going to engrave it or something. Pshhh

His boss took the picture. He’s a semi-pro photographer. He’s very good.

That is great! In my old unit the going away gift was a “Knife in a Box” which was a bayonet in a shadow box with other memorabilia (but highly cherished!). This is like that, only taken up a notch! Well done.

Yet another fine use of an ammo can! Great picture too of Marines at the gas chamber doing the annual CBRN training. You did a very nice job and will be something your friend will look back on fondly for years!
