So, I created these medals that were inspired by one I received during my time serving in the Air Force.
Its the only one I saved and I gave it to my son. Its the the one on the bottom right corner.
Its one I earned for Good Conduct. A service member earns one when completed 3 years of honorable service without having to be disciplined.
These medals I have created are for showing courage in any form. I made one of "Noble" for my son, Oliver. I told him to wear it to remind himself to have confidence in himself. I choose the one of "Brave" to remind myself, to practice what I preach. Taking a leap of faith.
You are probably thinking, "How did you choose to join the military?" I grew up in the military environment. It's what I knew and was comfortable with. Basic training was tough for me, I was not athletic or physically conditioned. I made it through with no problems.
These medals are hand stamped metal with pin type fasteners.
