About This Item

MN Soldiers

The coin was issued to help raise money for a memorial in Stillwater, MN. The memorial is going to be dedicated to three MN National Guard members who were killed on COB Basra.

The Department of Defense announced today the deaths of three Minnesota National Guard Soldiers who were supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom. The Soldiers died when insurgents attacked their unit using indirect fire - a term usually reserved for mortars, rockets and artillery.
SPC Daniel P. Drevnick, Age 22, of Woodbury, SPC James Wertish, Age 20, of Olivia and SPC Carlos E. Wilcox IV, Age 27, of Cottage Grove were killed in combat. All three Soldiers were assigned to Stillwater-based 34th Military Police Company, 34th infantry Division.
The Soldiers were killed by an indirect fire attack at 9:15 p.m. Thursday, July 16 (local Iraq time) on Contingency Operating Base Basra.
"We mourn the loss of these three Soldiers; they were truly part of our National Guard family," said Maj. Gen. Larry Shellito, the Adjutant General of Minnesota, "Please take a moment to reflect on the ultimate sacrifice made by these three brave men. We will never forget the dedication, loyalty and bravery shown by these Soldiers for the United States of America and the state of Minnesota. I ask that you keep these Soldiers, their families and loved ones in your thoughts and prayers now and forever."

This oldie deserved a nice location. Dropped it into one of the oldest geocaches in the Netherlands. Originated in 2001, it was the 12th geocache placed in the Netherlands. It goes through the dunes and, as you can see in the picture, it is beautiful here!
