The Metropolitan Coin Club of Atlanta, Ga., was awarded a U.S. flag and certificate in recognition of its support of the 1st Brigade Combat Team “Raiders,” 3rd Infantry Division.
The flag was flown over soldier Charlie Lumpkin’s base, Camp Ramadi, Iraq. He is the stepson of member Henry Bergos.
Last year club member David Crenshaw challenged MCCA members to a letter writing and care package campaign for America’s armed forces. Three of the club’s members are parents of soldiers in the military.
More than 30 packages were shipped overseas.
