Nicely done and quite a unique design from what is normally seen.

That’s one large and fantastic build!

I like the lighting.

Thank you, the wrong flag was purchased it was a 5×9 instead of the 3×5. The new flag was folded properly by our honor guard on base…

Military shadow boxes display items that describe their career: rank insignia/ medals/ ribbons / patches / pins. And they get passed down to family members.
