The NetAbstraction Story

Challenge Coins

Challenge Coins began with the military and are awarded to individuals as tokens of appreciation for a job well-done, usually for excellent service in conducting their assigned duties, often in support of a very special mission or for a significant achievement. Today, many organizations use Challenge Coins as a long-lasting, highly-collectible way to show allegiance anytime, anyplace.

The NetAbstraction founders, over their long history with the U.S. Intelligence Community, have amassed numerous Challenge Coins earned in defense of the United States and its global interests.
