BOMBER BARON - ABOUT THE DESIGN

ABOUT THE DESIGN: The BOMBER BARON coin represents the missions of the Bomber Baron Airman during Operation Inherent Resolve & Operation Freedom’s Sentinel. The coin depicts the Airman wearing the traditional “shemagh” and goggles to protect him/her from the intense dust storms that carry in walls of sand from the desert.

The rocket represents the bombs strapped to the b52Hs and the lightening strike represents the power in the sky and swift might of the USAF. Across the bottom of the coin is the Latin phrase “Nemo Me Impune Lacessit” w­hich translates; “No one provokes me with impunity”.

The Bomber Barons are to be congratulated for their affect on the recent liberation of the people of Mosul from the hands of ISIS.
