This is a shadow box made to look like swimming flippers for the Coast Guard Helicopter Rescue Swimmer, who will be receiving it for retirement.
The piece is made from cherry and stained dark to bring out the natural beauty of the wood. The crew that requested this for their co-worker will be placing the ribbons and medals once it gets to them. They'll present it at the retirement event for the individual.
The shadow box is made to hang on the wall. There is plexiglass inset to protect the medals and ribbons. It's removable with small screws.
It's always a pleasure to work with the military community. This job was an honor.
If you need a different emblem please let us know. We can customize it to your branch of service.
