MAC-V RECONDO School Coin (made post Vietnam) for those who graduated from this tough three week course taught by Special Forces Instructors at Nha Trang RVN and culminating with a real live fire field exercise against the enemy out there in the bush. MAC-V stands for Military Assistance Command- Vietnam. This course was one of the best schools I ever went to. It is a shame that RECONDO schools are no longer offered. Also shown are two original MAC-V RECONDO Patches and a 5¢ script from there.

This is the coin of the ARTB or Airborne Ranger Training Brigade at Fort Benning, Georgia. The number on it is my favorite caliber.

ARTB is responsible for both Airborne and Ranger schools. There are the 4th, 5th and 6th Ranger Training Battalions to conduct the three phases of Ranger School plus the 1st Battalion 507th Parachute Infantry Regiment to carry out the Airborne training .

This is not a unit coin but a coin of Vietnam service. Welcome home brothers and sisters! 58,000+ didn't make it home.

Military Free Fall or HALO coins. Note the older MFF/HALO Instructor coin with the proposed type 2 HALO JM Instructor wings.

Also note the original large HALO wings Type 1 and the current finally approved Free Fall Jumpmaster wings Type 3.
