Ok so i'll fill you guys in first my girlfriend's grandfather served in the Navy for 24 reaching his final rank of Chief Petty Officer. He served on a lot of ships but I think his favorite was being on the America. Now like 2 years ago I bought a model of the America to build and give to him.........it's still not done. Part of the problem is it was missing parts but also I am not that great at models so I was wondering what else I could do for him that pertains to the America? I would love to get one of those nice models that already built but I don't have a grand lol.

Thanks guys!

John

Quick search shows a lot of paraphernalia available online for the America. Most Navy vets would appreciate a ball cap or mug or something like that from their old commands. Maybe a shadow box to display his rank insignia, badges and medals?

Coin or the Flag? I Think the Flag as it can be displayed.

He most likely already has one, but if you frame this one, it could be a nice gift
