This case was built for an amazing hero that was in WWII, Korean War and Special Forces Vietnam. He began in the Army AirCorps, 502 Glider Regiment and later Special Forces. I am proud to have had the pleasure of meeting him before he passed.

The second pic is a woodburn of his crest and initials.

The 3rd is where the family hung it in their home.

Thats goodlookin, how do you attach all the awards/patches to the backing and if you dont mind a million questions what do you use for a back?
