I can’t take all the credit with these plaques or Picture Frame. My buddy Kenny and I did it together, Also all the engraving was done by my buddy Chris at Blue World.

I am currently in one of the PME the Marine Corps has to offer, traditionally at the end of the course we choose an individual who stands out through-out the whole course and they receive a plaque or something else and is named the Gung Ho for this course. (Last image).
Also whenever your have a Guest of Honor or Guest speaker. We will have both, one for our Mess Night and another for our graduation. The gentleman that was putting these together was going to your traditional shop and having them ordered. I am a firm believer that if it is made by the people who are presenting it you, it means more. So my buddy Kenny and I went ahead and volunteered to make them. I personally feel they turned out amazing. They will be presented to these three gentleman next week. Two of them Dec 10 and the other Dec 12.

The picture frame was made for our Platoon F.A. (faculty advisor).

I was given a K-Bar mounted to a plaque years ago for being top grad in the Sgt course(93)...not nearly as nice as yours. Good Job! Semper Fi

They all look very nice. I’m sure they will appreciate them…I know I would.

I’m guessing you live base housing at Camp Pendleton. I recognize the garage, it looks just like the one I had when I was at Camp Pendleton a couple of years ago.

Semper Fi!
