Gary Brannan
The Ross Hollywood Chapel and Veteran’s Day Parade

Ross Hollywood Chapel

Every year, Ross Hollywood Chapel sponsors Portland, Oregon’s only Veteran’s Day parade. Marine Corps vet Gary Brannan felt giving challenge coins to VIPs and Honored Guests of Valor at the parade was the perfect way to honor them – in true military tradition.

Time was tight to get Gary’s order completed, but it was done on time and he expressed his delight in an email stating, “All 50 arrived and they look great!”

Silver

Northwest Territorial Mint: Did You Know?Silver is a very ductile and malleable (slightly harder than gold) univalent coinage metal with a brilliant white metallic luster that can take a high degree of polish. It has the highest electrical conductivity of all metals, even higher than copper, but its greater cost and tarnishability has prevented it from being widely used in place of copper for electrical purposes, though it was used in the electromagnets used for enriching uranium during World War II (mainly because of the wartime shortage of copper).
