Challenge Coin Exchange – 6

By February 21, 2012Comms

Yet another challenge coin exchange! Stan­dard pre­amble: I exchange chal­lenge coins with mem­bers of the mil­i­tary, law-enforcement or other orga­ni­za­tions that use chal­lenge coins. The SHADOW OPSseries cen­ters around a fic­tional mil­i­tary unit called the SOC, and I have had chal­lenge coins cre­ated for this unit.

This exchange happened while I was signing copies of CONTROL POINT at the USMC exchange on their base in Quantico, Virginia. I’m setting up the table when who should walk in but one of my editor’s brother: Captain Sherbo, US Army! It’s nice to see that military service is part of the Penguin/Ace family. CPT Sherbo was kind enough to exchange one of his ROTC class coins for my SOC coin.

CPT Sherbo and I exchange coins

L - My SOC coin. R - CPT Sherbo's ROTC coin. Your coin gets mine!

Really psyched to have a coin from a family member of my publisher and an outstanding company grade officer in the US army. Hope the SOC coin travels with him on his future tours, as I know his coin will stay in my collection wherever I go.

Remember, your coin gets mine! If you’re mil­i­tary, law-enforcement, or a member of another orga­ni­za­tion that uses chal­lenge coins and want to trade with me, email me at myke (at) mykecole (dot) com.

    It was awesome meeting you, Myke!  The coin sits on my desk, right now, next to the OIF one my dad gave me and another I got from a Colonel back in ROTC.  Love your book, by the way!
