Military Hotrod Club - Marines - need help finding a challenge coin
05-05-2011, 04:20 PM
I worked at a restaurant for a few weeks before my current job and some POS knocked a bunch of the employee locker doors off their hinges and stole a bunch of stuff... including a challenge coin I took out of its case for one day to show my boss. They (the restaurant) have done absolutely nothing to help me get it back or find a replacement
Its the one given to the Co Honormen at SOI/ITB west coast. I've found several at their store that look similar but this one has an extra ring around it which says "Presented by the Commanding Officer"
it has the SOI logo on one side with crossed rifles and the other side has the ITB logo with the boots and "training the world's finest fighting men"
I dont know what its worth but any help in locating one would be greatly appreciated

This. I know you can order just about anything you are looking for thru Sgt Grit. I'll pull out one of my magazines here in a bit and see if they have one.
Edit: I can't find it in my magazines. Try here and see if you can find it. Good luck

I dont know if the Marines coins work the same way but I believe Air Force coins that say "presented by whatever" are specially made and cannot be ordered by just anyone. So you may have to actually get in touch with someone that works there. Sorry if this is not helpful.

Good luck finding one. I bet you find one at one of the local pawn shops in the next couple days! When you find who the thief was, cut off his hand.

Yeah, I think the Co Commander had them specially made...

it's a commanders coin its special made just for them can't believe a tool bag would steal something like that they probably don't even know what it means??

Thats the kicker, the SOI EO was Col Wooley, ITB EO was LtCol LaCroix, and the Delta Co CO was Capt Rodriguez - at the end of graduation with the families around, an older Maj in chucks gathered the honormen and gave out the coins. He didnt have a nametag (like the DIs) and frankly my only concern at that point was getting to the airport

Sadly you may have to chuck that one up as a loss unless the coin makers have a database. However even if you find one is it really going to be the same as the one you lost.
