- Nevada Army National Guard Joint Force Headquarters
I worked with the Joint Force Head Quarters 1st Sergeant to design this challenge coin for the unit in Carson City, Nevada. On the front side of this coin is the crest of the state of Nevada: the star with two swags of sagebrush, and a ribbon with the proclamation "Battle Born" across the bottom against a dark blue outline of the state itself. On the reverse side are the words "In Recognition of Excellence", circled by the 1st Sergeant's stripes, Master Sergeant's stripes, and Major's leaf, with the seven Army values around the outer edge. Along the rim of this coin is engraved the names and ranks of the 3 soldiers killed in the Carson City IHOP shooting of September 6, 2012. Never Forget.
