Comments about World Classic, Pacific Centered Wall Map, Laminated:
I used my map with 'tags', map pins and string to mark my duty stations and places I visited while on board ship during the Vietnam War. Most of the ports/cities I visited were listed on the map which made my project easier. Now that it is completed, my children/grandchildren think it is great.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
