As part of the itinerary, Mark also took a helicopter out to visit two Forward Operating Bases (FOBs)--the FOB War Eagle and FOB Istiqlaal before flying back to the States on the 14-hour flight to D.C.  Mark was presented with a commemorative coin as a “thank-you;” the Challenge Coin, as it is commonly referred, was presented to Chesnutt by General Ray Odierno, Commanding General, Multi-National Force, Iraq.
