United States Army Airborne Coin
The 82nd Airborne Division is an active airborne infantry division of the United States Army specializing in joint forcible entry operations. Parachute-qualified infantry and support personnel serving in airborne units are also known as paratroopers. The main advantage of airborne forces is their ability to be deployed into combat zones without land passage, as long as the airspace is accessible.
Based at Fort Liberty, North Carolina, the 82nd Airborne Division is the primary fighting arm of the XVIII Airborne Corps. Nine of the Army’s 13 four-star generals have led or served in the 82nd or XVIII Airborne Corps. Airborne also offers training, morale, retention, and recruitment perks, according to leaders.
Many airborne soldiers absolutely love what they do, despite or sometimes because of, its inherent risks. That is why when one of their command sergeant majors resigned, they made him a special custom challenge coin. They wanted the coin to be elegant and luxurious, and the design concept was nothing unordinary.
The coin was machined to have a smooth edge and thin rims. The base metal material for the coin was etched and engraved with some graphics elements such as the US Army’s and the Airborne’s emblems and insignias. The overall finishing coat for the coin was gold-color plating and the other elements were painted according to their original colors.
