This shadowbox was commissioned by a retiree to wanted to honor his wife’s service by giving her a shadowbox with her dress uniform in it during his retirement ceremony. He and his wife met while they were both on active duty. After 8 years she got out and he stayed in for 20 years. I think this was a great way to show his appreciation for her service.

I built the shadowbox and my wife installed the uniform. I think she did an amazing job with the presentation of the uniform.
