Wow!  That’s an amazing man for sure!  I can see how it would be hard to buy for him since he has served in every branch.

1.  What about a nice dress watch?  You could have it engraved with his name and original date of entry into the service and retirement date.  Citizen watches are very reasonable and run off of movement/solar power, so they are really cool and unique.

2.  Maybe his wife would be able to find a picture of him in each uniform or from each time period and you could put them in a nice frame with mats behind each one and underneath write the branch and the years served in it.

3.  You could also get him something little, like a car decal or baseball cap, for each branch.  He would probably get a kick out of it if you wrapped them each separately in different sized packages. 😉

That’s all I can think of, but if I think of any more, I’ll add.

Oh well bummer!  They did beat you to it! 

What about a shadow box or a saber?  These two sites have some really awesome ideas, but you can find them elsewhere too.  A google search of either would give you lots of companies to choose from.

I think both of those ideas would be so classy, although they may be more expensive, and I’m sure they would also be able to help you with the multi-branch aspect as well.
