Corpsman~Please help~Need a Pin

  1. My fiance was in the Navy and served as a corpsman for 8 years. He was stationed in Rota Spain before he came back stateside.

    I want to do a shadow box for Christmas for him. I have some of his ribbons but am looking for the caduceus pin you wear. Our house burned down 2 years ago and this didn't make it.

    I don't know what it looks like or where to buy one. We live near Whiteman Air Force Base in Knob Noster, MO. I know they sell stuff like that at the BX or wherever they sell uniforms, because I have been in there before, but I don't know if they sell Navy stuff.

    Any leads you could give me to let me know what exactly it is I am looking for or where to buy it I would GREATLY appreciate it.

    My FI finishes nursing school in May 06 and I finish in Jan 07. I thought this would be a nice gift for him for Christmas. If it wasn't for him being in the Navy as a Corpsman...neither one us would be in school for it.

    Thanks bunches,
    Jillius
