I carved this out of a large tent steak while stationed in Al Quim, Iraq. With just a Leatherman Micro and a lot of spare time.

a great tribute to all that serve

that moment of transition
and the feelings it invokes

thank you for your reminder
of what price is paid
for our freedoms

and the losses we all share in their passing

God bless all

I like this! I go to websites that gig me for my service. They get to say whatever they want because other people went and made sure they could, and cold thanks for it. Pfff.

Thanks for your service, Marine. :)

A job well done! A leatherman micro, besides some good carving skills, you’re persistent.

Welcome to Lumberjocks, and thank you for your service to our country. Great carving and wonderful
tribute. Thank you for sharing. That Al Anbar province is a wonderful place to be away from.
