Hand Carved gift from my Dad recognizing Desert Storm

My family contains a long list of Veterans and needless to say we are very pro military.  As most of you know I am a USMC veteran.  My son is now a US Marine and my father is a Vietnam Veteran of the US Navy.

A few weeks back my Father had a series of heart attacks, so he has had a little time on his hands while he is waiting to go back to work.  He is also a gifted wood carver.  The other night he calls me to come by and he gives me the carving pictured below.  It depicts and eagle's head and carved/painted Kuwait Liberation ribbon.  He also made these with the Vietnam campaign ribbon.  The wood that he carved these in is the bark of cottonwood trees.

If you are veteran of one of these campaigns and you are interested in getting one of these let me know.  I think these are awesome.  Thanks Dad.
