48th Infantry Regiment Challenge Coin
The 48th Infantry Regiment is an infantry regiment in the United States Army which is founded in 1917. The 1st and 2nd Battalions, 48th Infantry, were mechanized infantry units assigned to the 3rd Armored Division (United States) (3AD) in West Germany during the Cold War. The battalions had overlapping assignments in the 3AD within the time frame 1957 to 1983. On June 16, 2017, the 48th Infantry’s 2nd Battalion was reactivated in a ceremony at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri.
48th Infantry veterans are very pleased to know the Dragoons are once again proudly serving our nation at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, training about 5000 soldiers per year, primarily for the Combat Service Support branches. They have received a number of historical artifacts of the regiment from World War One to modern times. Additional items I am sure would be welcome.
They asked us to produce their custom challenge coin and wanted it to be also functional as a bottle opener. They wanted something bold and straightforward, with no room for unnecessary ornaments or decoration.
The base material was shaped like a dog tag, with the area in the middle cut out for the bottle opener to function. The base color is gloss black, with the edges and the letterings finished in gold. The only colors applied are just the ones on their Dragoons insignia.
