I made this for my friend getting out of the Corps. The box is approximately 35×40” big, possibly a little bigger from what I recall to fit all of the keepsakes on the left hand side of the uniform. This individual was a non-lethal weapons instructor, so I incorporated the Oleoresin Capsicum spray bottles as well as shotgun shells at the bottom. I mounted the uniform utilizing strategically placed 1/4” staples and pins to hold the sleeves down. Enjoy!

It looks great. I’m sure your friend will appreciate it. Always nice to honor those who serve. I think he’ll have this a long time to come.
