You can design a plaque like this one for the veteran in your family. By providing me with their assignment and date(s) of service, I can create an appropriate piece based on their wartime experience. Working with you, I can create a display for any branch of service. Please note: this image is for display purposes only. This item is NOT for sale. I created this commemorative for a local veteran and "Ace-in-a-day", Captain William Beyer, and it was given to him on Memorial Day, 2013.
This panel is constructed of aviation grade aluminum and rivets and is painted with zinc chromate, a standard primer in aircraft construction. The display side can be painted any color or made of any material that would be appropriate for the veteran's service or interest. It measures 9"x12" and is pre-wired for wall hanging. Please contact me prior to ordering so that we can discuss your specific needs.
