    And how and why do folks get them?

    You get a coin and put it in your drawer with all your other old pin on shit I guess?

    Our Company Gunny yelled at us for not appreciating coins like we should. Apparently the new generation doesn't appreciate the old traditions of the Corps.

    They used to mean a lot more. Nowadays every unit gives em out.

    Even though I was a picli, I think the RCR coin is the best nowadays

    edit: probably going to get my ass beat for that :o
