This was for a MAster Sergeant that was retiring. It is fashioned after the cockpit and nose of the CH-46 helicopter. On the nose compartment is a wood burned CH-46 “Phrog” and a UH-1 “Huey” gunship helicopter. In between both helos is an engraved Master Sergeant Chevron (rank insignia). The right side swings open on hinges to access the cockpit area. The backing is made up on dress blue trousers with the NCO “Blood Stripe” and her medals and engraved placard.
