In honor of Veterans Day, we decided to share the following testimonial with you, our customers. In addition to creating a coin that was rich in sentimental value and personal history, we were able to provide our customer with free shipping. This is one of the reasons why we are one of the leading challenge coin manufacturers around.
Here’s what the Pope County Salute to Freedom Task Force had to say about the coin that we created for them:
On behalf of the Pope County, Arkansas Salute to Freedom Task Force, an official thank you to you and to your organization for making this coin happen. The presentation of this challenge coin to our veterans is the center piece of our annual Veterans Day Salute to Freedom Ceremony which will be held at 5pm tomorrow (11-11-11) immediately following our Veterans Day Parade at 4:00pm.
The parade is the largest Veterans Day parade in the state of Arkansas. It includes a flyover by two A-10 Thunderbolt II Aircraft (Warthogs) and also many bands and floats.
The ceremony lasts about 45 minutes and it is during this ceremony that this year’s honorees will be asked to form a line and to “step off the helicopter”, a 40 foot by 8 foot mural of a Chinook helicopter to be greeted by 1,000 of cheering fans from our community. As soon as they step off the helicopter they are greeted by several general officers (1 & 2 star) and civic leaders.
As our honorees step off the stage they are then greeted by a double flanking honor guard composed of all others veterans present including: WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, OIE and OEF men veterans.
It is going to be our best event ever much in part to you and your company. I look forward to working with you next year with many weeks more advance notice.
With Respect and Appreciation,
Jim Bob Humphrey, Chairman
Pope County Salute to Freedom Task Force
