Recently gifted my father-in-law with this Display Case for his Winchester. He is a retired MGySgt USMC. I gifted the Winchester to him quite a few years ago on Father's Day and just got around to finishing off this wall case for him to show off his M1.

He actually spent quite some time hauling an M1 around during his 3 tours in Vietnam and was his primary escape weapon after his Helicopter was shot down.

That episode earned him the Silver Star.

Great guy and a great gun.





.....Happy Landings.....

You be sure to Thank Him for his service for all of us here. And that case is a great gift to him. You did a good job.

Super memento! And anyone who did 3 tours is a hero in my book.

Very nicely done. I was fortunate enough to get into a Medical Reserve unit back then, but administered to many wounded over there. God Bless.
