WWII Veterans Flag Case

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


WWII Veterans Flag CaseI built this flag case this past spring for the family of a WWII Veteran who was killed in action in France in 1944. The Cooney family of Cresson, Pennsylvania owned Cooney Brothers Coal for many years and I am proud to say that several of my Uncles and Great Uncles were Dragline and other types of equipment operators for them. When I learned the oldest Brother Thomas, was killed in Action in 1944 near Vologne, France, I wanted to do something to remember and pay tribute to that. The box itself is made of Walnut. I then inlaid the base and uprights with Coal and then epoxied it in. I then obtained his awards and uniform devices, mounted them and inserted them into the lower frame. The flag is a full 9.5×5 Casket flag, which I had flown at Arlington. I then carefully wrapped it around a form and inserted it into the top and folded the rest in behind it. I then delivered it to the family and presented it to the remaining family members.
