Blue Star coin now available

Hugh Holmes, a U.S. Army veteran and member of Mitchell, S.D., American Legion Post 18, is the inspiration for a Blue Star coin to honor spouses of men and women serving in the military.

“I was looking at online merchandise on at Emblem Sales and noticed that coins were available that honor military men and women, but there were no coins to honor spouses of military members,” Holmes said. “The job description of a military spouse is too hard to put into words. It is the hardest job in the world.They do everything and they do it well.”

Holmes e-mailed Emblem Sales representatives, noting his concern about no coin for military spouses. Richard Keith, director of Emblem Sales, liked the idea and ordered production of Blue Star coins.

Emblem Sales mailed a free coin to Holmes, and he later ordered a number of the newly minted Blue Star coins.He presented his first coin to his daughter-in-law.

“Spouses deserve a big pat on the back for their service to our country, and sometimes we overlook people who do a good job,” Holmes said. “I love the design of the coin. It has the colors of our country and the Blue Star Banner.”

  22. You may purchase the Blue Star coin through Emblem Sales. They have additional Blue Star items in the catalog or the online catalog. The coin is to honor spouses, family members, etc. of service members those who currently and formerly served this great country. It is a way to say thanks for a job well done to the spouses and family members. Being a military spouse is one hard job! My thanks to all military spouses and families. Hugh Holmes, Dept of South Dakota
  23. The article headline praises the Blue Coin's availability then does not tell us where it is available. Did someone forget something?
  24. My daughter in law'S HUSBAND is in the UNITED STATES COAST GUARD. How can I obtain a blue coin for her? JOHN SHEPPARD
  25. Especially since our country no longer makes such available for our currency. Contact me at 734-323-8193c for more info if you are interested, Hugh Holmes or Richard Keith. Article 1 Section 10 para 1 of the US Constitution still provides for such, never amended or repealed.
