ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - A father and son, both veterans have created a unique military momento called Service Tabs. They are hoping they bring joy to service members and their families and help propel their jewelry business to the next level.
Dave and his son David Howard sell service tabs out of My Jeweler in the Hoffmantown shopping center in Albuquerque. They are comprised of keychains, pins and charms that represent the different branches of the military, the different jobs and the many different family members.
The senior Howard got the idea when his son was graduating from Ranger school. He created a keychain for him as a graduation present.
Soon other soldiers in his company were asking for one of their own. It gave the pair the idea to turn it into a business.
Each charm is hand made by the Howard's in their Albuquerque Jewelry store.
The pair takes great pride in their product and those who service the military. David Howard served in the army when he was young and his son Dave just retired recently after serving 10 years.
Service Tabs are also available online at www.servicetabs.com
