This Operating Unified Response – Haiti coin is an ideal salute to the U.S. Military personnel who proudly assisted the country of Haiti in the midst of one of the most devastating natural disasters in history.
On Tuesday January 12, 2010, a catastrophic 7.0 earthquake occurred just 16 miles from Haiti’s capital Port-au-Prince. The devastation was unimaginable, yet even among the destruction the people of Haiti found new hope from the aid that the men and women of the U.S. military provided.
