Good point ... Guess I'll start with the location instead? Elgin Air Force Base is where they're currently located.

OK - I have a new quest :-) Son is currently in A School at NAS Pensacola ... Today he got his new orders ... I now need to find challenge coin for VFA-101 Grim Reapers. Can't find anything other than patches. Any one have any ideas?

Just received our Navy "Shields of Strength" scripture coin.  Going to give it to our son before he deploys later this year.  Ordered a few others too, anxious for them to arrive.  Our friend's son (Army) deploys to Kuwait later this year.  He's a helicopter pilot & we ordered him the Army Core Values coin to carry with him.

Our collection is growing!
