Lutheran Church Charities KARE 9 Monthly "22" Event
Wednesday, June 22, 2016 at 6 p.m.

KARE 9 Lutheran Church Charities
3020 Milwaukee Ave, Northbrook, IL

According to the Veteran's Administration, each day 22 VETERANS commit suicide. To remember the victims, those affected by these suicides and to help prevent others, LCC's KARE 9 Military Ministry sponsors a "22" event each month on the 22nd of the month. Designed as an outreach and support for active military, veterans and their families, "22" offers a safe, confidential and upbeat environment for sharing and fellowship as it raises awareness. The Kare 9 Military Squad gathers to help host this evening with food, music, ceremony and informational/inspirational speakers and fellowship. Already this year, more than 200 people have joined LCC at these events to share time together, reminisce about time in the military, and are treated to speakers who share insight and information

All are welcome and the event is FREE. Please RSVP to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or call Jim Morrison at 866-455-6466.

History of The Challenge Coin Print E-mail
The Challenge Coin The Challenge Coin has been an honored tradition since its origination during World War I. New flying squadrons were formed in Europe and were comprised of American volunteers from all over the country. The squad contained varying economical classes, including many wealthy Yale and Harvard men who quit college mid-term to serve in combat. A wealthy lieutenant in one of the squadrons ordered solid bronze medallions made with the squadron insignia on them, and presented the medallions to his unit. The coin was carried as a symbol of pride and camaraderie.

Shortly after the presentation of the medallions, one young pilot from the squadron was shot down, landing behind enemy lines. Captured by the Germans, he was stripped of all personal identification except the coin. The young pilot escaped, however he had no personal identification. Dressed in civilian clothing, he was able to reach the front lines where he came upon a French outpost. Unfortunately, because of the high proliferation of saboteurs masquerading as civilians, the French were suspicious of the young pilot. Having no personal identification, the pilot was sentenced to execution. Pulling out his medallion, the pilot showed the coin to his French captors. One of the men recognized the squadron insignia on the medallion and delayed execution so that the pilot could confirm his identity. Once identified, the pilot was given a bottle of wine instead of an executioner’s bullet.

The Challenge Coin Soon a tradition was born as members carried their medallion or coin with them. Whenever squad members gathered, a challenger could ask to see the medallion of the challenged. If the challenged could not produce a medallion, he was required to buy a drink for the challenger. If the challenged member could produce a medallion, the challenging member was required to pay for the drink. This tradition continued throughout the war and still lives on today.

Lutheran Church Charities Kare 9 Ministry has adopted the Coin Challenge as a means of encouragement and support for our veterans. Each LCC Squad Member carries a supply of specially made LCC coins to present to the many veterans that the Lord places in their circle of service and care. These coins have become particularly meaningful to the Vietnam Veterans due to how poorly soldiers were treated when returning from the war.

LCC staff member and Army veteran, Jim Morrison, recalls one ministry moment that was particularly moving. “There are numerous occasions when we witness first-hand the power behind this time honored tradition, but one encounter in particular moved us to tears. While visiting a WWII veteran in a Texas Veterans hospital, the very day we visited was an anniversary of remembrance for this veteran who served in 1944. He recounted marching with the 3rd Infantry Division into Rome. As he spoke, he gestured to all his medals that he had in a shadow box display on the hospital wall. When we asked him if we could pray with him, he said “Yes”, but asked if we could sing a song afterward. As our prayers ended, this treasured veteran began to sing “Amazing Grace” a capella. It was one of the most moving renditions we had ever heard. It is a moment we will always carry with us.”

The LCC Kare 9 Squad distributes approximately one thousand coins a year, each individually numbered, and each given and received with great honor. Squad members extend comfort, mercy, and compassion as they reach out to God’s people.

On the back of the coin is inscribed 2 Corinthians 1:5, “For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ.” And comfort is what we do!
