This turned out bigger than it was suppose to be. The flag was too big. I engraved the glass and burned in all his units. When one retires, they don’t just retire from their current command they retire from all duties.
Semper Fi!!

Rickey, Another fantastic project. The receiver of each of these projects should be very proud. This is not designed to be critical but the gold EGA in the center red area are available in pairs and designed to be worn on the collar of a uniform. These pairs have the anchors facing inboard and I would recommend the ones on the left be changed so they are facing inboard. This is again a great project and my comment is only a recommendation. Great job.

Yeah, I made a lot of mistake like placement and order of things when I was making some of these boxes. I was just getting into fine wood work when I was making them. It’s been at least six years since this box was built, I have no idea where Gunny Benjey is today or I’d fix it. Thanks for any advice, tips or critical suggestion! Semper Fi!
