U.S. Air Force - Prime Beef Coin
The highly skilled technicians of the U.S. Air Force Civil Engineering units build and maintain the infrastructure that ensures America's air superiority and military dominance throughout the world. For more than forty years, the members of the Air Force's celebrated Prime Base Engineer Emergency Force (Prime BEEF) teams, have provided a full range of engineering support to establish, operate, and maintain garrison and contingency airbases throughout the world. Charged with the mission of providing beddown for Air Force personnel and aircraft, emergency response and management, explosive ordnance disposal, and expedient construction, the men and women who serve this highly mobile force stand ready to deploy on short notice wherever they are needed most to support America's military and strategic priorities. This coin honors the courageous and skilled warriors who lead and support the Air Force's Prime BEEF teams as they fulfill their specialized mission. The design on this coin replicates the distinctive unit patch of the U.S. Air Force Civil Engineering Prime BEEF teams, featuring the image of a snorting, long-horned bull kicking up a cloud of dust. The reverse bears the official crest and shield of the U.S. Air Force.
