An excellent, and required, suggestion!
My daughters and wife decided to surprise me with a medal/insignia
display <snip> It's always better to ask, particularly in this regard.
Yeah, I'd be miffed if that happened to me too. However, you
didn't give your stuff away; this guy's father did. So, I'd say the old
man also gave away any say on how they should be displayed, or kept, at
the same time. My vote is, the kid has the final say; but if he wnts a
shadow box, he should keep it in his room, just like he'd do with a box.
I still favor a box..
I've got mine in a drawer in the bedroom. I open the drawer and
take a look every few years, then close the drawer. Works for me.
It's not hard, if you get your mind right.
