How many of you still carry your Coins?

Hey Doc, i was at the 12th '80 through '89; 82-84 in the Gp 3 shop and 84-87 as team commander in B/1/12, so i know we ran into each other on occasion. Still have my coin(s). Now in my collection, just carry a generic one in case of Alzheimers.

I was a member of GSC at Arlington Hts,1992 to de-activation. Before that I was with the rigger unit out of Gary,Indiana so I got to straphang quite a bit with 12th Grp.

I still have a couple of my original coins plus the numbered ones we were given upon de-activation. I also have a shirt that someone had made with the coin on the back along with the years 12th Grp existed.

Any chance of finding one of the numbered deactivation coins? ...Are there any available?

Very doubtful. When they were given to us our name and the number on the coin was recorded we also signed the roster.

I'll be attending SFA Ch 75's annual picnic in San Diego on 10 July. Lots of 12th Group guys in that chapter. Anyone in the area who wants to attend can contact Ch 75 through the SFA website or PM me.
