    I will like to send a couple former or current serving Marines a Free Token to thank them for their service. These were pulled from a can of tokens purchased yesterday. To be eligible, reply I am in with dates served, unit, highest rank, and campaigns of your unit if applicable.

    Is this a Challenge coin or Token or both?

    I do not understand a challenge coin. I believe it is a token advertising
    Toys for Tots.

    I am not a Marine. I am an Air Force vet. However, the father of one of my coworkers is a retired Marine. I ran a 5K last year that was sponsored by the Marine Corps and there were several Marine items (a hat, a couple of lanyards) in the goody bag they gave us and I passed them on to him. He was thrilled. I'm sure he would also be thrilled with one of these coins if you choose me as a winner. I understand if I'm not 'qualified' though.

    Thank you for your service John. If I do not get at least 2 Marines to sign up, I will gladly send you a coin for your co-workers father. I hope a few former or current Marines do see the thread and want one of the tokens.

    I was moved by this thread. I am responding mainly to get it back up near the top hoping you get a bit more traction before the deadline........ And as an aside, I too have one of these in the odds & ends part of my coin collection. Don’t even remember where I acquired it. If you get more folks interested before tomorrow I would gladly contribute mine as well.

    So far, only 1 response from a Marine and John Johnson willing to give to a co-worker. Your generosity is appreciated as well. capthank responded, but never clarified if he was interested.
