    Brian, the one thing that caught me eye is the large medallion in the white cardboard box. It appears to me to be an OP Athena medallion. Any chance for a close up and possible more info??

    Exactly what it is. Found at a garage sale, bolt on the back for attaching to a plaque. Cheers Brian

    Excellent find Brian. These were available for purchase at the CANEX at Kandahar Air Field. IIRC, they were also offered as a tour gift for Roto 9. My crew got me the medallion and collage as well. These were NOT cheap as I recall. When I have a few minutes, I will post mine.

    Price is still on the box. $55. Not cheap. Cheers Brian
