This summer we went to North Dakota to help clear out my wife’s grandmother’s house. The flag was her grandfather’s and was just sitting there fading leaning against a wall. I thought it deserved more respect so I tore out a few boards from the basement knowing that I would keep them in as original condition as I could since her grandparents built the house themselves. This was the only handmade Christmas gift I made this year, when I presented it to my wife’s mother she wept with joy saying she feared that the flag was lost. I felt it fitting that the display case be made out of wood that her grandfather milled himself and honored the flag that he proudly fought for in WWII.
