A Five Medal Salute to Veterans

Medals | coinsbygary

As a veteran myself I want to thank todays veterans for their selfless service and sacrifice to our country. I was fortunate to have joined the Navy in a time of peace (1976-1982) and have never fought in a war. I always told people that my war was the Cold War. Still we constantly trained for war. I likened my service to a person keeping watch on the wall of a city while those in the city rested in security. Todays veterans know the horrors of war and I thank them for fighting our wars while we in the city rest in peace. This 5-medal salute is my tribute to todays active and veteran service men and women.

I would never have made the connection of these medal to Hawaii without the COA (struck by Hawaii Pacific Mint for Dolphin Medallions. Apparently, the United States Submarine Veterans of World War II had these medals made for the group. The group has disbanded due to the low remaining WWII survivors. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Submarine_Veterans_of_World_War_III purchased them medal at separate times and I keep looking for them to add to my collection.Those members still surviving have move on to another group. https://www.ussvi.org/home.asp
