Excellent job Rob! A worthy box to commemorate a worthy career. I’m sure the box and all the memories it contains will be treasured for a long time.

This is fantastic Rob, I would love to build something similar for my cousin who has all my uncles metals from WWII. He recently passed away from cancer and will always be one of my hero’s unlike the sports & movie stars who they try to pedal off as today’s hero’s. He spent five years over sea’s from Africa to Anzio,and the battle of the bulge. There are some of us who know who are our real hero’s are and they almost always wear a US service uniform.

That’s a nice case. Worthy of the career that it represents.
