Lt Col Eichelberger, the current AIA commander at Kadena, has produced the GREAT coin in commemoration of the 6916th's tenure at Athens from 1 July 1973 to Oct 1990............  He sez:

     As you know, many military organizations have created commemorative coins for their personnel to keep as a remembrance of their service with a particular unit; or to be used to commemorate a significant event.  Knowing that this year marks the 10th anniversary of the closure of the 16th, I thought this would be a good occasion to create a  6916th ESS coin.  The attached file shows the front and back of said coin.  I wanted to pass this note to you to see if others might be interested.  I've already paid for the minting costs, and figure $5.00 is a fair price that will cover the cost of the coin and all mailing costs.  I hope this proves to be a unique momento which former Athenians would want to add to their collection.

Price: $5 (includes postage)
