Seems backwards, though. Wouldn't Obama be the one giving the coin then, since he's the Commanding Officer of all military personnel?

I guess that we owe you a "Thanks" for enlightening those "speculators" who often know little, if anything, about the real world out there. I was kinda hoping to let them run with this ball just to see how long it took before they painted themselves into the idiot corner. Oh well, It was fun while it lasted.


Then why were they so discreet about it? If it was something like that, he shouldve presented it to him openly, then Obama shouldve looked at it, thanked him and then pocketed it.

Instead, he hid the exchange in a handshake, then Obama, while looking away, discreetly placed it in his pocket.

I see your point, but that is not how it works. The presidential staff does have there own coin with the presidential seal, and it's an honor that is usually reserved for war heros and such that might visit or meet the president. I can assure you though, that it is common practice for the CO to give the President a coin, not the other way around.

Agreed. Good deeds are done in the sunlight, not in darkness. And if it was a coin, then why don't we see this in every single video of Obama getting off planes and meeting officers?

Probably notes telling him where he is, where to go, and who to hug. He had a little card earlier in the day in Tuscaloosa too, he kept going for it in his breast pocket. It's rough out there in the world without a teleprompter.

When did the military world become the real world?

I would say the real world is getting up each morning and going to whatever crumby job you have for 10 hours 5-6 days per week.

If you haven't been in the military then how would you know?

Here sir, is your real birth certificate safe and sound as promised.

In all seriousness, It was probably a commemoration coin or an itinerary of events for the day/pass card.

This was my first thought as well, a challenge coin, but then I thought, who hands a challenge coin to his superior? They are usually handed down. It's like a Battalion commander giving a challenge coin to a Brigade commander, it just doesn't work that way. edit - Or so I thought - we will never know what that was.

I guess its a sign of respect to hand one "up".


I hate to quote wiki but this isnt such an important subject.

en.wikipedia.org...


Challenge coins and U.S. PresidentsPresident Bill Clinton displayed several racks of challenge coins, which had been given to him by U.S. servicemembers, on the credenza behind his Oval Office desk. These coins are currently on display at the Clinton Library. The challenge coins appear in the background of his official portrait, now hanging in the White House.

President George W. Bush received a challenge coin from a Marine combat patrol unit during his short but unexpected visit to Al-Asad Airbase in Anbar province, Iraq, September 3, 2007.[7]

President Barack Obama placed challenge coins on the memorials of the soldiers slain in the Fort Hood shooting.[8]

"Here are those tampons you asked for, sir."

"Thank you! I'll just pocket those for now and hand them to Michelle when we get on the 'copter. My daughter started her period again. You know them teenage girls, always forgetting their tampons!"

Just a note from hawaiin surgeons to say that his wives extra hand transplant was a
complete success, and that he could now look forward to his long-sought after, much enhanced
sex-life, worthy of every president.
