Anniversaries are special occasions. Usually, those celebrating the distinguished event are lavished with thoughtful gifts from family and friends alike. NRA's Law Enforcement Activities Division (LEAD) has turned the table ... just a bit.
To celebrate their 50th Anniversary, LEAD has issued a commemorative challenge coin. With the NRA Seal on one side and a special 50th Anniversary badge on the other, this coin is sure to be a favorite for all. Unfortunately, all can not own one.
Ownership of these coins is restricted to a select few. Only those who attend a LEAD school, training seminar, or competition will receive this coin. And for those of you asking that all important question; no, they are not for sale in any stores. Don't worry thought - some LEAD 50th Anniversary items are.
For a 50th Anniversary memento of your own, visit our Program Materials Center page at http://materials.nrahq.org/go/home.aspx. Scroll down and click on the 50th Anniversary Commemorative Items link under Law Enforcement. From there you can choose a badge, an embroidered logo, and more. And be sure to keep checking back as new items should be added throughout the year.
LEAD has long worked to support the efforts of law enforcement throughout the land. In addition to classes and tournaments, LEAD offers the Law Enforcement Officer of the Year Award, the Jeanne E. Bray memorial scholarship fund, and a life insurance benefit program.
