coin packagingUSS John P. Murtha (LPD-26) 

This brilliantly crafted challenge coin dedicated to all the patriots, warriors, and champions of the USS John P. Murtha (LPD-26) will make a lasting treasure for any crew member or crew member’s loved one.

The LPD-26 bears the name of former congressman, decorated Marine, and Vietnam War vet, John P. Murtha. All previous San Antonio-class ships hold names of American cities, while the amphibious LPD-26 became the first to bear a person’s name.

As a San Antonino-class amphibious transport dock, she combines integral elements of three older ship classes to create one mighty multifunctional warship. Because the LPD-26 provides a well deck and a flight deck, she can expel up to 800 Marines into combat zones using landing craft, amphibious vehicles, and helicopters. For perilous missions requiring air-transport, the LPD-26 has the real estate to launch four CH-46s, two CH-53Es, two MV-22s, or four UH/AH-1s.

Armed for surface and air defense against threats near and far, the USS John P. Murtha (LPD-26) and her crew are prepared for warfare on any ocean or shore.

Minted in antique bronze and highlighted by bold enamel, this challenge coin honors the crew of the USS John P. Murtha (LPD-26). The obverse features the ship slicing through the sea above the text, “MAKE A DIFFERENCE.” The reverse displays the ship’s seal in brilliant red, white, and blue enamel with the words, “PATRIOT, WARRIOR, CHAMPION,” that reflect upon Murtha’s patriotism, his dedication to wounded warriors, and the causes he championed while serving in the U.S. House of Representatives.
