Homeported in NAS North Island, San Diego, California, USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) is America’s fifth Nimitz-class aircraft carrier. She is the second Navy ship to have been named after former President Abraham Lincoln. She is also a member of the United States Pacific Fleet. She is administratively responsible to Commander, Naval Air Forces Pacific, and operationally serves as the flagship of Carrier Strike Group 3 and host to Carrier Air Wing Nine.

They asked us to produce a custom challenge coin for one of their supply officers. Instead of being shaped like a normal coin, they requested that this one is shaped like a golden oak leaf. The oak leaf has been a chief symbol of the Navy Supply Corps. And gold and silver oak leaves are used today to denote the rank of Navy lieutenant commanders and commanders, respectively. In 1826, the oak leaf insignia first appeared on the collars of Navy surgeons.
