    Who ever has the highest ranking coin doesn't have to worry about buying drinks.

    I think it's more along the lines of, whoever doesn't have a coin pays for the drinks. I guess if everyone has a coin it goes to rank...?

    Don't really care for the rank deal as I have coins ranging from 4 star gen and from boot camp instructor. My most coveted coin is from my boot camp instructor, the day he said you are no longer a maggot and you have earned my respect.

    Either way, nice looking coin man.

    Thanks everyone!!
    tick2791 and Cazca did a pretty good job summing it up haha!
    This particular coin required a nomination from some higher ups, pretty cool cuz it's the first one I've received where they weren't just given out easily (like for answering a question or being in the right place at the right time haha) - only a few got it and had to be considerably earned. Awesome morale booster - dilutes homesickness haha.

    I was active duty USMC for 5 years and been in the National Guard since 2009.... never been coined. I don't hang out in bars too much though.
    Hell of a coin though! I think my highest is from a full bird Colonel.

    Hmm, something new, we didn't have anything like that when I was in, 1971-74. Remember reading about those in Chris Kyle's book.

    Amazing book! Another really outstanding read -- "Victory Point" provides insight and backstory to the book "Lone Survivor" except Victory Point is written by an embedded journalist with Marines...highly recommend!

    at the bar a "Phening ( german small coin) Check. " If you did not have a phening you had to buy th next round.
    As was mentioned earlier, AI carried a pheningcoin in my wallet from the second day in country till I came home.
