    The next time I go home it'll be about 2 years since I've seen the parents for an extended amount of time. I had my mom send me one of my dad's coins without him knowing (92nd Army Corp. of Engineers) and was thinking about getting one of those plaques with that coin and one of my AFSC (jet engine mechanic) but I'm having a hard time thinking of something to have etched in it.

    OTmilitary, give me some ideas please :hsd:

    That sounds like a pretty cool idea and I'm sure he would love it.

    As far as what to put on it....just make it personal to your father/son relationship maybe or maybe the tradition being passed down in the family or something. :dunno:

    And that's why I asked OT for opinions. Because of him being away 24/7 and retiring and settling down just in time for me to move out, I don't really know him. I guess I was hoping for a generic military saying someone knew or something lol
