Display Cases and Commemorative Medals

Display Cases and Commemorative Medals

To Sgt. Grit,

I recently went through a box that had been packed up for over forty years. I rediscovered my medals, ribbons, certificates and awards that I had received while serving my country in the Marine Corps ( Feb. 1965 to Jan. 1971 ) After some consideration, I decided to display them and my pride of service. I also thought I would surprise my Father and Brother with a display of their service. My Father, now 84 Yrs. old, served during WWll in the Pacific( USMC 1942 to 1945 ) He was at Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Saipan and Okinawa some of the most fierce battles the Marine Corps has ever had. My brother was in the Army ( 1969 to 1972 ) Both of them were overwhelmed when I presented them with their displays cases. The pride in their face was worth a million dollars. I often find my Father gazing at the display on the wall. Thank you for all your help and of course for the availability of all the products I purchased from you. ( See Attachments 1, 2, 3 & 4 )

NOTE : I know myself and many of my veteran buddies are still not totally sold on commemorative medals. They feel that because the Government did not issue them that they were not earned. But I know in my case I found using them along with the rocker patches really help to tell the whole story of my service. Also I used another case, marked with a brass plaque saying commemorative medals, it made all the difference in the world. It help to tell where and when I served. ( See Attachment # 1, 2 & 3 ) In ( Attachment #4 ) is my Father's case. The rocker patches help to tell the story of the battles he was in and where he served and when. I hope these tips might help you sell more of your products and help other when putting their displays together. Semper Fi Sgt. Michael James Smith USMC Ret.
