This I made as a Farewell Gift for our Commanding Officer and his wife for her support of the unit. The photo is not mine, but must give credit where credit is due as it really ties the gift together. Frances White Photography. She took the photo and had it put on a metal photo. The Naval Aircrew Pilot wings I made and are three separate pieces, all hand drawn and burned. The gift for his wife, is a hand drawn and burned Eagle, Globe, and Anchor; the symbol of the Marine Corps.
