Heres a little something I worked on right afer I came to Friendship and transferred to the Local VFW post. The backing is a 5/8” sheet of plywood, naturally stained, and the lettering is cut out of 1/2” rough cut White Oak. All the lettering is hand drawned and cut out seperatly. the Lettering was stain with a dark Walnut stain, the lettering is glued and screw on from the back side, and the whole thing has about 8 coats of Polyurethene. I hope you all like it. Jim

Air Force here. I only sleep in a tent if I’m on a camping trip.

And thanks for your service Jim. I did not go in until 1979. I missed that mess.

Nice work as always, Jim. Thank you for serving our country during those times. My younger brother was USMC in the Gulf War and got out after returning from the war.

Love the sign, Jim! I was Navy, ‘65 to ‘85. Also a VFW life member, Post 8385 Kingsland, GA. Semper Fi to you and thanks for your service.

Have your say...
