Supply Corps Challenge Coin

USS Tortuga (LSD-46) is a Whidbey Island-class dock landing ship of the United States Navy. She was the second Navy ship to be named for the Dry Tortugas, a group of desert coral islets 60 miles west of Key West, Florida. The keel was laid down by the Avondale Industries in New Orleans, La., on March 23, 1987. She was launched on September 15, 1988, and christened on November 17, 1988.

In April 2006, the TORTUGA replaced the USS FORT McHENRY (LSD 43) as a forward deployed naval unit in Sasebo, Japan. The hull swap was part of the Navy’s long-range plan to routinely replace older ships assigned to the Navy’s Forward Deployed Naval Force with newer or more capable ships. The TORTUGA was previously homeported in Little Creek, Va. In August 2013, the TORTUGA was replaced again in Japan by sistership USS ASHLAND (LSD 48) and changed her homeport to Little Creek again.

We had the opportunity to create one of the most unique custom challenge coin for their First Class Petty Officers. It’s shaped like a Sea Turtle, complete with the head and flippers! And it’s also can be used as a bottle opener. It’s beautifully crafted that the tiny details on the flippers and on the USS Tortuga’s insignia are perfectly cut and painted.
