USAF Retirement Gift PresentationTestimonial by James O’Connell USAF

“I ordered a custom Air Force Keepsake box for a friend’s retirement. In a typical fashion, I was late in ordering the product. Despite it all, the team at Relic Wood went above and beyond to make an a phenomenal product and to ensure the product arrived in plenty of time to be given at the retirement ceremony.”

“The gift was extremely well received by the retiree and others in attendance made numerous positive remarks.”

We were ecstatic at the quality and the look of the keepsake box. The customer service and support was superior. I would go out of my way to recommend Relic Wood again.

About this custom project . . . 

Relic Wood created this custom USAF keepsake box to be presented to MSgt Knight at his retirement ceremony. It was made completely by hand right here in the United States.

It also featured the Master Level Air Force Maintenance Badge. On the maintenance badge, the falcon symbolizes the airborne strength possessed by the Air Force. That strength is made possible by the maintenance of aircraft, munitions, and communications-electronics equipment. In its talons, the falcon is holding a bomb and a generic 21st century aircraft. They are crossed to show the interrelationship of the career fields.

The three levels of the award are signified by the addition of a star centered above the falcon for the senior level and the star surrounded by an olive wreath for the master level. MSgt Knight had achieved the Master Level through a lot of hard work and dedication during his career.

The front of the keepsake has the US Air Force text and an engraved brass nameplate with his name, rank, and Air Force service dates. It was an honor for us to have been chosen and trusted to make his retirement gift. We are humbled and we greatly appreciate MSgt Knight’s many years of service to this great nation. We wish him all the best and a very happy retirement.
