Any active member on duty or retired from the Marine Corps deserves the utmost respect for serving the country. They have devoted their time away from their loved ones and home. This is an appreciation for the work they have done with great courage and dedication. The Marine corps coins are usually given to the members by the commanding officer of the unit. The coins have the unit number on them and shows the branch which they represent. These are the honour coins which are given in each division in the Marine corps.
The honour of having these coins is important part of the brotherhood which is represented by members of the division. The older Marines who have died on foreign and domestic soil are a remembrance of the purpose of the coin. It stands for in America’s freedom battles. The ability to return to a land free of the brave souls who believed in protecting the freedom is the prominent feature of the coin.
