Home was where the Army sent us  (any service), 


Home was where the Army sent me

 Simple but elegant design to fit your home decor. Makes a wonderful farewell/retirement gift. An instant conversation starter that will always help you bring back memories of an unforgettable military career.

The main board measures 15"x 5.5", with the duty stations measuring 12" x 2.5". Duty station boards are connected with white "s" hooks. 

Add your duty stations, including state and dates (if you wish) in 2-3 lines of text. Remember, the more lines or images (eg. deployment ribbon) you add, the smaller the text will be.

You can purchase just the main board or add the desired number of duty station boards. Please send us a message if you don't see the number of boards you need.

**When ordering, please include:
1, family name or Service Member's name (exactly as you wish to have it on the board eg. Smith Family, The Smith Family, the Smith family, etc - the way you leave it in the notes section is the way it will look on the board)

2, established date (exactly as you wish to have it on the board -- any format, eg. 2010, June 2010, or June 26, 2010 - if you write it as June 26th, 2016, that's what it will read on the board as well) For families it is usually the wedding date, for Service Members it is usually the date they enlisted/joined the Service.

3, duty stations (in the right order, top duty station being the first one you were stationed at) with or without dates, the same way as in the picture.
**the following images can be added to your sign without any additional charge:
- deployment ribbon (yellow or white -please specify
- baby feet (please specify color - blue, pink, or white)
- wedding rings (silver, gold or white - choose one)
- paw prints or cat/dog silhouette, white (I am happy to see if I have a silhouette of your dog's breed)
- graduation cap (white)
- house silhouette (white)

If you don't see an image you'd like to add to your board or have a completely different design in mind, please contact me before placing an order to ensure I can meet your needs. If want Symbols/images not listed above, those can be added for a small charge.

If you’d like me to leave room on the duty station boards for something you’d like to add yourself after receiving your sign (patch, ribbon, etc), please leave a note.

Your new “Home is” sign comes ready to hang with a rope attached to the back of the main board.
Wood has been sanded, stained with dark brown stain, then protected with a matte finish. Finally, outdoor-quality glossy white vinyl is applied. Additional blanks can be purchased separately.

Production of each sign is started once the order is placed. It usually takes 2-3 weeks for the sign to be completed and mailed.
If you need a rush order . . . please consider purchasing a 'rush order' upgrade.

Thank you for visiting Bloom And Anchor!

Retirement Board

I'm so thrilled for my retirement duty station board. I love it so much that I've hung it next to my mounted tv. Hajnalka was very responsive and was truly amazing from start to finish. She communicated with me and sent me examples and asked questions to ensure what I wanted, she could do. Highly recommend this to others! I am just loving it!

I’m so pleased with my duty station board I purchased as a Christmas/retirement gift for my husband (and kind of to myself because I have always admired them). 😍 Love it!! From start to finish, my friend Hajnalka was an absolute pleasure to work with and I am happy to recommend BloomAndAnchor to anyone looking for that special and meaningful gift.
