My brother recently gave this flag to me and I immediately wanted to
display it. My son and I made this and it turned out pretty good.
I am pleased to display this tribute to him. He was a
WWII US MARINE who served in the South Pacific.

Thanks for your help Anthony.

Nicely done and most appropriate memorial to one of our country’s finest, a United States Marine.

Nicely done, also nice to see the flag actually folded. Lots of times with these cases the flag is actually wrapped around a triangular form so it looks real nice an pretty in the glass but the rest of the flag is actually stuffed in the box.

The most honorable thing you can do for a fallen soldier is to display their flag. You have done so in a beautiful way. My hats off to you and your son ! I thank your father for his service and your family for your sacrifice while he was serving.
