In 2014, during a meeting with Tennessee state Governor Bill Haslam, and his wife Crissy, on Tennessee Plaza for the Veteran's Day Ceremony a gift of a coin was made. In attendance was former Afghanistan, US Marine Corps sniper Daniel Dean along with Travis McVey and Marti Mongiello.
It was conceived and later discussed with the veteran's affairs expert, Stephen Cochran, of the STOP 22 Suicide Campaign and the ASMBA Star Foundation to develop a coin. Additional support was had from Ralph E. Land of AMVETS and Stormy Mongiello.
The Presidential Service Coin was paid for entirely with private funds (to not burden members with donation requests or grants) and designed for sharing and sale as a fundraiser. Numerous sizes were examined, developed with several, plush, velvet cases featuring gold print and an eventual, full, 3" size. This is one of the most significant coins ever issued on earth and is hand-painted. As of 2016, the coins have been shipped worldwide and are available to purchase online at our official, licensed store at Facebook (NO FACEBOOK ACCOUNT REQUIRED TO SHOP).
Interesting Fact: One of the first purchases was by an alumni member on operational security detail now in the US Embassy of Luxembourg.
