United States Army Veteran Plaque

This Army Veteran plaque is over 7 inches in diameter. You can display it as presented here or mount it to a backer board.

One of the most important things a man or woman can do in their life is serve their country. We owe all of these folks more than we can express in words. Last week I was talking to one of my customers at work. Somehow we got onto the topic of fighter planes and that led to him mention that he was a Vietnam vet. I made the casual comment that I appreciated his service to our country and thanked him. What he said next caused me to be speechless (No easy thing to do to me.) He told me that it was the first time since he came back that anyone had personally thanked him for what he did over there.

We moved on to other conversation but I could not get what he said out of my head. I just kept wondering how many other men and women have come home and not heard those words spoken directly to their face.

Obviously that is what I was thinking about tonight when I sat down to design a pattern. Hopefully you can use this pattern to tell a veteran thanks. Maybe they are waiting to hear those words for the first time also.

I am thinking about designing custom screen savers for scrollers. They would include a scroll saw graphic and your name for $4. What do you think? Anyone interested? It would look like the graphic below. For a little extra I could include the custom pattern to cut also. Not sure the graphic will animate in the email newsletter so you may have to watch it on the blog.
