Chief Joshua Bright, Master at Arms, Meridian NS, meeting Vice President Pence on Thanksgiving and receiving a challenge coin.
Josh is the son of Alan Bright and Kristin Collings, Wheatridge, CO and Yuma, AZ. Alan is a first cousin.
Alan's father, Lyal Bright, was a Navy Gunner on armed merchantmen in WWII.
Josh has had an interesting career including a stint at Guantanamo. His wife was in the Army. Quite the couple!
Challenge coins are valued. A place of honor in my son's house has a challenge coin from the then Sgt Maj of the Army given to him in Kandahar.
Challenge coins can be an interesting form of legacy.
Something tangible and enduring.
Pretty cool. Not many of those coins floating around. Being a gunner on a merchant ship during WWII was really asking for it. BZ to him.
Uncle Lyal was a short man. His grandson is a power lifting giant.
Very nice! Congrats to him!
Happy for him. Saw another picture of him with Lt Pence. Son of ?
I have a few challenge coins, and they are dear. Have been surprised at the number of guys who don't know anything about them.
I didn't pay any attention to them until my youngest joined the Army.
