in the military and understand the culture (know the difference between
a CSM and a C7). Please allow them to be the Art Director of your production.
There is a certain artistic balance and flow to Op PLAX that enables
us to assure you that the finished product will be pleasing to the eye.
It also provides a designf continuity from one op to the next should
you elect to collect them throughout your career.
With the permission of the great folks at DND and Combat Camera, we
have selected 12 suitable background images from which to choose.
If you have one that you really like, send it to us and we will do our
very best to make it work.
send us creative and interesting photos of you doing what you do while
on tour. Keep in mind that this plaque is likely to become a family
