Vietnam War: The Helicopter War Challenge coins


Those of us that served in Vietnam will never forget the sound of the huey...NEVER. LZ NAM personally designed this coin and you won't find it anywhere else. The coin was made small enough (1 1/2 inches in length) that you can carry it around in your pocket, wallet or if you like, just for that special collection you have. This coin has both 2D and 3D images. On the front of the coin it reads VIETNAM: THE HELICOPTER WAR and under that is of course the most recognized United States service ribbon...the Vietnam Service Ribbon. Under that is a UH-1C helicopter gunship. On the reverse side of this one of a kind coin the images of the Memorial Burial Flag and the Purple Heart with the Purple Heart Ribbon affixed on top. Also some helicopter statistics from the Vietnam War. > 36 Million Sorties > 11,827 Helicopters Served > 5,086 Helicopters Lost > 4,906 Crew Deaths > Thousands Of Lives Were Saved Because Of The Helicopter And The Brave Crews That Served Aboard These "Birds". During the Vietnam War, the United States relied on the helicopter as never before. The helicopter's role in combat expanded enormously in this conflict as thousands of "choppers" rapidly transported personnel throughout the war zone. Heavily armed helicopters offered a fearsome component to ground operations as close air support. Mobility and firepower would be the keys for American operations in Vietnam, and the helicopter provided an abundance of both. But the role of the helicopter in support activities in the Vietnam War must not be overlooked, as thousands of missions were flown to resupply and reinforce troops on the ground, to evacuate American and South Vietnamese wounded, and to offer countless other services in pursuance of the war effort. The UH-1 "Huey" is the ubiquitous symbol of the American war in Vietnam. Indeed, the Vietnam War was the Helicopter War. This is truly a beautiful one of a kind challenge coin not just for us Nam vets that served in chopper units, but for all Vietnam veterans. (Individually poly bagged)
