Thanks for the information. My daughter is finding out if I need silver or gold. I guess it's a bit like Navy dolphins, silver vs. gold, not something you want to goof up. I know his parents have his certificate and medal framed at their house. I'm thinking a lapel pins would work if big enough. If not, I can get a patch and try to figure out the placement on the shirt. Now I just need to find a pattern big enough for him. My new SIL is 6'4" The top of my head barely reaches his shoulder.
He grew up in TX, so I want to make a western styled shirt with a collar. Thanks again for the information!
