245th Aviation 1st BN Special Operations Airborne/160th SOAR Army Challenge Coin

  • $375.00

1 1/2 inch Challenge Coin. An original 245th Aviation 1st Battalion coin, circa 1980s.

In 1986, it was renamed the 160th Aviation Group (Airborne); and in May 1990, the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (Airborne). As demand for highly trained special operations aviation assets bloomed, the regiment activated three battalions, a separate detachment, and incorporated one Army National Guard unit, the 1st Battalion, 245th Aviation (OK ARNG).
