During the last couple of weeks we have been busy with a project that took us out of our comfort zone. A customer we have known for many years finish building her dream home. The house is located in a gated community with the most spectacular views of El Paso, I honestly have to say that no other house in El Paso is privileged with such a magnificent view. I have no knowledge of architecture so I can’t state what type of style was used to build such a beautiful house all I can describe for you that it reminds me of an old Mexican Hacienda with a Mediterranean twist. The house has a gorgeous dome that can be seen from any angle of the property I can only imagine the view that one could see from this magnificent place. Our company was hired to make eight flags, each flag representing the last name and lineage of both our customer and her husband. The flags are place directly above a beautiful twenty person dining room table. The poles are hand carved with a beautiful braided design and both are supported by a beautiful wrought iron base. Our customer chose the finest silk fabrics to compliment the family crest. We hope you enjoy the pictures just as much as we enjoyed making these flags.
It was on July 6th 1988 when I arrived at HHC 2/68 Armor. Ft. Knox was a distant memory and I was eager to put my skills as an M1A1 Tank Turret Mechanic into practice, but I was surprised to find out that the 8th ID still had the M60A3. Well that is how my story in the United States Army began. The 8th ID is no longer, the 1st Armored Division took it’s place and now it’s home to the 170th IBCT, well not for much longer. So when I received and email requesting information about guidons for the 170th IBCT I got exited. Baumholder “The Rock” as some call it was my home for 4 years.
This guidon is ready to do it’s tour of duty at “The Rock”
I just love it when a customer wants something out of the ordinary. We received an email from Japan an Air Force customer that was looking to get a custom Air Force Guidon, he gave us the general idea of what he wanted and attached a great logo that he wanted incorporated into the guidon. What I liked the most was the Transformers concept that the graphic had, needless to say I wanted this job. It is very rewarding when they tell you, When can you ship? You can see how we “Transformed” our customers idea from paper to fabric. At www.DODGUIDON.com we strive to get the best products for our customers. Send your idea to email@example.com we will send you a quote as soon as possible.
It was an honor for us to make the guidons for the transition ceremony to be held on September 9th. We would like to thank the entire staff of the 174 ATKW for choosing our company with this great honor.
