In honor of Veterans Day, the MacDill AFB Exchange will recognize those who selflessly sacrificed for our nation with free challenge coins. 

This is the third year Army & Air Force Exchange Service stores will distribute the limited-edition coins to veterans on Nov. 11 at 10 a.m. while supplies last.

"The MacDill AFB Exchange is grateful to our veterans who served and sacrificed for our country," said MacDill AFB Exchange General Manager, Nicholas Nguyen. "The freedoms we enjoy today are a testament to those who raised their right hands and answered the call to serve."

The coins, which feature an eagle on one side and emblems for all six military branches on the other, are available while supplies last. 

Veterans are encouraged to contact the MacDill AFB Exchange or visit the store's Facebook page for more information.

Since 2020, the military resale Army & Air Force Exchange Service; the Navy Exchange Service Command; Marine Corps Exchange; Coast Guard Exchange and the Defense Commissary Agency have joined together to salute veterans through the collectible challenge coin giveaway.
