What exactly would you do with an old uniform? Most people would just keep it in a trunk or hung up in the back of a closet. In rare cases they may have the jacket framed, but that's the extent of it.
This is a keepsake that you can touch and feel, and hug close to you when you miss that person. You can pass this down to your children and tell them the story of how brave that person was, and how this teddy is just as brave and will help them with nightmares and childhood problems. Lots of kids imagine their teddies defend them- and a military teddy can have a bigger impact on that than the regular soft stuffed bear.
