I was an average Marine at best. There was nothing spectacular about my six years in the Corps, but I’m proud of my service. I’ve been contemplating putting together a shadow box for years. If you don’t know what that is, it’s just a display case of rank, ribbons and medals, unit patches and other items of service. I’d still like to do this, and I certainly will at some point, but it just didn’t make it to the top of the priority list this past year.
