Carrying the cause of liberty to the far reaches of the globe, the U.S. Army has stood firmly against the forces of oppression for well over 200 years, supplying hope to those who seek escape from the shackles of tyranny.
America's Soldiers, proud members of the world's most powerful military, are bound together by a common creed -The Warrior Ethos - which applies to every task they undertake and every mission they set out to accomplish. Consisting of just twenty-three words, this creed captures the warrior spirit that has guaranteed America's military dominance for over two-hundred years.
This coin pays tribute to every American Soldier who lives by the words of the Warrior Ethos each day. Minted in the shape of a dog tag, the obverse features a montage symbolizing the Army's potency and effectiveness in the defense of freedom. The reverse contains the text of the Warrior Ethos overlaid on a grid-lined globe. This coin is struck in a brass alloy and finished in antique bronze with subtle enamel accents on both sides.
