    that is awesome!!! I so wish I had something like that during my time in training and active duty. I've been out for 10 years and most are distant memories. So as someone who has served, I think that this album is just an amazing gift and a great preservation of this time in his life.

    LOL Tia, I was hoping no one would ask!!! LOL When it comes to speaking his mind, sure, he's totally up for it, but when showing his feelings, you get absolutely nothing. I will ask his fiance if he's showed or said anything about it. She did say he was excited that I was doing this for him b/c he kept talking about it.

    But a story to go along w/ this.......he was applying for a scholarship and needed all his documents from the marines to make copies of. I had already taped all of them down (even eyelet one down), only 1 was untouched b/c of the cover it came in. I had no idea that he'd need them (and I don't think he realized he'd need them too), it was really unplanned. He was so mad that I put tape on the original documents, yet he didn't ask me to make copies for him or make copies before he gave them to me. I also thought, since they are pretty much a keepsake item now, that it wouldn't matter how they were attached, but that it was nicely displayed. I had to peel all of those documents off, it was awful. I didn't tear anything, luckily, but left some creases here and there. The one page I eyelet, I had to give him the whole thing. LOL So his copy included little stars in the corner. LOL I sure hope he made extra copies just in case. I hope he likes it regardless!
