I made this flag at work to honor federal correctional workers that have been killed in the line of duty. All give some…some give all.

Thank you guys, I just recieved my twenty year service pin and I have a few more years to go. I don’t want my name added to this memorial so please keep me in your thoughts and prayers.

Pdub I just cut a stripe on my band saw with a wave that appealed to me, then I used that as a jig for my router to follow it’s what I used for the cuts top and bottom as well as the grooves. the whole board is curly maple and I used stain on every other stripe.
