The one on the left is a bronze statue called “The Chief”. The original is in DC.

Hey Chief!

Bravo Zulu on the shadow box!

Just a couple of ?’s…

What do you have in the background of the Chief?

What is the award between your Southwest Asia and Navy Expeditionary medals? I’m guessing National Defense!

You nailed it, Nat Def (with a star yet, lol) tho the one to the right is the called something like the Navy Outstanding Volunteer Service Medal.

I just took a shet of thin brass sheet the height and rolled it so it provides a curved mirror like surface and allow you to see all around the statue.
