My aunt and uncle gave me patches from when they were in the Air Force. They sat around for nearly 20 years before I finally did something constructive with them.

Patches from Nellis AFB
Patches from Holloman AFB

I ended up building these nice wall displays incorporating the principle aircraft that the men and women who wear these patches serve with. Each display is on matting board, framed under glass, with a blurb about the groups represented by each patch.

I had these adorning the wall of my apartment in Cochran, but when I moved to California (since I had nowhere to safely store them), I presented them back to my aunt and uncle as a token of appreciation not only for their service, but also for their part in helping make me who I am today.
