Military Retirement Gift?


Recommended Posts

We will be attending my brother-in-law's Coast Guard retirement ceremony in a couple of weeks and are wondering what would be a good gift for the occasion. It can be a large gift ($200+ range) as there will be 4 families contributing.


Thanks ladies!

I would check to make sure his Unit has not planned to present him with a shadowbox...or that he and his wife have not bought one themselves.

In the AF, it is fairly standard to be given a shadowbox by your unit, co-workers, or sometimes picked out by the spouse. I had a specific one picked

out for my husband, so I bought it...but his unit would have if I hadn't.


I like the idea of getting something he would enjoy post retirement.
