Navy Reserve Retired

This unique coin honors all the brave men and women of the U.S. Navy Reserve who have sacrificed for our freedom, and are now laying down arms for a new generation to come aboard. 

The importance of Navy Reservists throughout our history cannot be overestimated. In fact, the nation’s first citizen sailors, a pre-cursor to the Reserve, put to sea even before the Continental Congress created the Continental Navy. Inspired by news of the battles in Lexington and Concord, citizens of the seaside town of Machias, Maine, commandeered a schooner and engaged the British warship HMS Margaretta. They boarded the Margaretta and forced her crew to surrender after bitter close quarters combat. Througout the American Revolution, the small size of the Continental Navy necessitated the service of citizen sailors, establishing a solid naval tradition in America, upheld by members of the Navy Reserve.  

Minted from solid bronze, and imbued with bold colored enamel on both sides, this medallion honors all retired United States Navy Reservists who live up to the motto, “Ready Now, Anytime, Anywhere.” The obverse features the seal of the United States Navy with the words “Pride-Tradition-Service” underneath. The reverse displays the seal of the United States Naval Reserve.
