Staff Voices: The Challenge Coin Comes to CDP

In 2001, I arrived in Keflavik, Iceland on a freezing cold Friday evening and instantly wondered why I had picked this duty station. That night we were taken to the supply warehouse and were all issued eighty pounds of cold weather gear. The next morning we were on our first training hike which culminated with a traditional hike up Mount Olfus. Upon reaching the top we were all welcomed to the command and presented with the Marine Corps Security Force Company Keflavik Iceland Challenge Coin.
