First Challenge Coin in the Field!

1 Comment

Back in April, I did a blog post on mil­i­tary chal­lenge coins, and how I had some cre­ated for the Super­nat­ural Oper­a­tions Corps (SOC), the fic­tional mil­i­tary unit around which my upcoming SHADOW OPS series revolves. I had long planned to do chal­lenge coin exchanges with deployed mil­i­tary per­sonnel around the world, as is tra­di­tional with coin holders.

I’m pleased to announce that I’ve got my first photo of a SOC coin in the wild. Above is a shot of my buddy Chris with Deploy­able Forces JTF GTMO. It’s hard to tell in the photo, but that’s a SOC chal­lenge coin he’s holding! I’m proud to have Chris as the first uni­formed mil­i­tary per­sonnel with one of these coins, and hope to have many more to show you in the future. Thanks Chris for all you’re doing for your country. The SOC motto is Our Gifts, for Our Nation, and it’s a plea­sure to see you putting yours to work.

If you’re in the mil­i­tary or law enforce­ment, or any chal­lenge coin bearing orga­ni­za­tion, please keep this in mind: Your coin gets mine. Just shoot me a mes­sage and let me know how to get in touch with you, and I’ll gladly send you a coin to exchange. If you’ll send me a shot of you holding the coin, it goes on the blog. Looking for­ward to seeing how many I can get!
