Made this for one of my friends for his retirement. Sadly we lost him a few months after he retired.

That’s nice…I have a friend who is a truck driver, but he probably won’t get one of those! Sorry for the loss of your friend. Jim

What a wonderful memorial to a friend. Although my brother was never in the military, as a trucker he would love to recieve this special gift upon his retirement. 120 lbs overweight and several heart attacks forced him to retire from full time driving, but he and his wife still teach truck driving. No more truck stop meals, and in his own bed every night. Lost 75lbs so far and his wife has turned into a health food maniac.

That is a very nice miniature and was a wonderful gift. I’m sorry about the loss of your friend, however.
