In the latest "Inside The East Wing," First Lady Michelle Obama talks about the "challenge coins" she's gotten from Joining Forces - an initiative calling on all Americans to rally behind service members, veterans and their families.
The First Lady gives out challenge coins of her own.
I want one!
From Michelle Obama:
Proudly on display in the First Lady’s office are the challenge coins she has received through Joining Forces, an initiative the First Lady and Dr. Biden launched in 2011 calling all Americans to rally around service members, veterans, and their families. The First Lady even has her own challenge coin honoring the extraordinary individuals she meets through Joining Forces.
Challenge coins have become a trademark of tradition and pride in the military community. Dating back to World War I, challenge coins are widely used throughout the military to commemorate those who go above and beyond the call of service to help others. Behind each and every challenge coin there is a unique story of our military service members and the families and organizations that support them.
