I work on a Navy Base and Decommisionning?sp coins are being released on Dec 3 is my understanding. If anyone would like one I can pick it up for you. I'm not sure if quantities are limited or not, nor do I know the price but if anyone is interested let me know.

I would be, but I refuse to own one, having never served on it.
