    Gift for friend getting out of army

    My best friend is getting out of the army after two tours in 25 days. He is a calvary scout and very proud of it and what he accomplished over seas. I want to get him a gift but I'm completely lost on what to get him. I thought about a sabre or a belt buckle to go with his spurs and Stetson from cav scout graduation. Let me know if you have any ideas and links to web sights would be a great help. Thanks

    I'd settle for a six-pack of Guiness or a bottle of Jim Beam Black if it were me.

    Good ole West Virginia
    If you're living off of a trust fund maybe a nice engraved colt 1911? Haha if not i agree with old vet, maybe a nice expensive bottle of his favorite liquor and a day at the range. (Separately of course)

    How about offering to pay for a tattoo for him. Something that he will have forever and maybe that links to him military career.

    Thank him for his service!

    Give him a flag, both tasteful and very respectful.

    Once he realizes what he's getting back, like Family time, weekends, evenings and holidays (no more 365/24/7), it's hard to find an appropriate gift.

    I do think they give flags to people leaving the service now, but would't swear to it.

    My younger brother joined the U.S. Coast Guard as an E-1, and retired with 30 years as a Lieutenant Commander. At his retirement party I presented him with a Randal knife, with his name and rank engraved on the side. I had to wait three years to get the knife (prior planning), and I think the wait time is closer to five years now. It's the best knife on the planet IMHO, so it's worth it. You could order him a knife today, and put the receipt in a card for him. I've included a link to their web site.

    How about a nice framed certificate that states "Congratulations, You no longer report to President Obama!"
