Each Challenge Coin, also called Round Metal Object (RMO), is numbered. Coins are issued as orders come in; you cannot request a specific number. You will receive the next number in the remaining inventory.
Challenge Coins are part of a heritage beginning hundreds of years ago, that became part of our current military culture again in the 1980s. When you receive your coin, you’ll also receive that historical info plus the RMO “Rules” (They’re very important to know!) about “challenges made and the consequences.”
Our Association has been hard at work putting our history online and in published books. Please check out the links below to see the bios, videos, stories, and published books of your fellow aircrew members. If you have not done a video or written a bio, contact Everett Sprous, Wayne Laessig, or Roy Davis via the “Contact Us” link for more information.
