Airborne warriors who wear the US Army Fort Bragg 82nd Airborne Jump Wings badge are the elite in airborne combat and wear the famous AA—All American Combat Service Identification badge. The story of the 82nd Airborne is this: thousands of unnamed paratroopers in jump boots, baggy pants and maroon berets, always ready and willing to jump into danger and then drive on until “mission accomplished.”
The US Army Fort Bragg 82nd Airborne Division coins honor these warriors who have fearlessly gone into bloody battle. One citation reads, “…33 days of action without relief, without replacements. Every mission accomplished. No ground gained was ever relinquished.” Carry this coin as a badge of honor.
Each of these Fort Bragg 82nd Airborne Division coins is minted in a rugged brass alloy. The obverse of these handsome coins carries the Airborne AA insignia. The raised circumference lettering is 82nd AIRBORNE DIVISION, THE ALL AMERICANS. The reverse is the Great Seal with “United States Army.”
Each coin measures 1 3/4 inch (44mm) in diameter.
