Default For a retiring Army sargent

A neighbor will be retiring the end of this year after 30 plus years in the Army. He's a really nice guy and I thought I would make him a gift to honor his service. The camo rifle cartridge pen will be engraved with his military name (last name, first name, middle initial), his rank and the years of service (first and last) plus U.S. Army. The box came to mind as a cool way to present and display the pen. There will be a tutorial on the box submitted in a day or two, it's already written but I want to review it before submitting it.
Thanks for viewing.

Very cool Pen and Box. As a Retired Army guy myself, I can tell you that I would cherish a gift like that and it would be a great reminder of my time in service. Thanks for taking care of a fellow veteran.

Oh how I wish things like this would have come up in the box contest just held. This is the very essence of that contest. This is what I wanted to see in that contest. The ideas are out there people.

Well done and the concept is perfect. Thanks for doing the tutorial too. I am sure it will be well received. Thanks for showing.

Thanks for the kind words. I just signed on and realize the phone camera didn't capture the actual color. The box is a really nice OD and looks better than the "gray" the pictures show it as. Maybe I'll Photoshop them to regain the original color. I'm also working on Navy and USMC "crate" boxes.
