Vietnam Tunnel Rat – Vietnam Veteran Engravable
Armed with only knives, flashlights, and pistols, Tunnel Rats earned the fear and respect of the Viet Cong, hunting them through darkness man-to-man. While braving booby traps, deadly gas, and ‘Charlie’ hiding in the dark with an AK-47 at the ready, Tunnel Rats used their extraordinary combat skills and highly developed intuition to ferret out the enemy from the darkest holes in the Vietnam War. These brave men rose to the occasion and did the job that needed done, but few could perform.
This special, engravable coin salutes the proud and brave Americans who, a half-century ago, served the cause of freedom in the Vietnam War by bravely entering the fight to prevent communist aggression and liberate the people of South Vietnam. Now, those who belong to this elite club called Vietnam Veterans, especially the elite soldiers nicknamed Tunnel Rats, can carry this meticulously crafted coin as a firm reminder of proud service to country.
Minted in the USA from solid bronze, using special deep-relief coining dies, and hand-finished with an antique patina for exceptional quality and detail, this coin honors every brave and elite veteran who took up the job of Tunnel Rat during the Vietnam War. The obverse features a hardened Army combat engineer, with flashlight and service pistol at the ready, about to enter the rat-infested tunnels of the Viet Cong. The reverse, depicting a scene from the Vietnam countryside and the Vietnam War Service Ribbon, is engravable, suitable for names, duty dates, or special remembrances.
