My Hero, My Love Shadow Box

My husband was a wounded Vietnam Veteran. He had all his medals in a box in a room in the attic. I took them and his military picture and made a shadow box for them. I put the picture in the center and his medals including his purple heart and dog tags around it. I surprised him with it on our 17th anniversary July 1, 2012. He absolutely loved it. He passed away from complications from his wounds July 10th 2012. The shadow box has a place of honor on my living room wall.
