Posting Pix: Resultant of patient mentors with excellent instructions. Thank you, Phyllis & Wendy.

I used a Facebook album as the resident placeholder for the files & had/have comments coming in from acquaintances who hadn't seen it either. Glad you approved of the shirt.

Your shirt is AWESOME! Thank you so much for the pictures. You've got me trying to figure out how to incorporate my husband's hash marks on the sleeves. I don't think he would like to include his medals. For some reason they are fairly irrelevant to him. He didn't even want a shadow box for his retirement, but I made sure he had one to be presented at the retirement ceremony. He is proud of his submarine service, but doesn't know where his dolphin pin is. I might need to pick one up before October. Thanks again for the pictures and the website link.

Thanks & good luck on your endeavor.
It is the spirit put into the shirt that makes it truly a part of the wearer. Adorn it in any manner he desires - it is him and a reflection of how he sees himself.

That statement certainly confirms something for me. The shirt we have won't work for the adornment which "suits" him. It was the only one available to fit at the time and I liked the pattern. However, the pattern placement on the sleeves is off, so I can't do the hash marks. It would look goofy, as my husband put it.

So I'm onto Plan B. A new shirt of plain fabric which I can decorate to suit his tastes. He'll end up with 2 ribbon shirts and my dress isn't even started:-)

Lucky him... Nice to have a spare for the circle if one gets soiled.

Was it a shirt that fit him & he claimed it would do? There's a start toward a basic shirt. A 'veteranized' one can be the formal, show-off shirt.

Ulp... Sorry about any delays in your dress.

That was my thought, a casual one "that will do," and a more formal one adorned to his tastes, in case they need a flag bearer for Grand Entry again. But he might also get to wear the formal one at our daughter's rehearsal dinner. The groom grew up in Texas, and his parents are hosting a Western dinner. I asked my daughter if her future in-laws would mind a few Indians showing up, and a nice ribbon shirt for my husband would fit the bill. They didn't specify "Cowboys" only.

A lil 'Cowboys & Indians' before the big event?

Grand Entry - absolutely - with or without bearing a banner/flag. I'm usually in with the Vets right behind the flags, but I was asked last year to bear the National Colors & was lucky to live only minutes away to grab the shirt.

<of course, I'm the kind of guy that showed up at a 50's themed party dressed in 1850's garb. Duh, they didn't say 1950's>
