I built this case for my flag and medals upon my retirement from the USAF. The flag in the case isn’t the actual flag given to me at the retirement. I carried this one on 5 combat missions outside the wire during my tour in Iraq.

Thanks for letting me share my love of woodworking with you guys and gals.

Man, I love the spiral posts and you even did the one in reverse!! You must have done a ton of sanding on those.

Beautiful Work!!

Very uniquie case and nicely done. Thanks for what you did while serving and glad you made it back safe. I’m sure this flag has a lot more sentimental value.
