Highlighting The Moves That Fuel Us: Ltc Maharaj
Friday Aug 28, 2020

Advance Relocation Systems has a very special relationship with the Department of Defense and the U.S. Military. We have been moving service members and completing other types of moves for the Department for decades. Recently, we completed a full pack, move, and delivery for a high ranking U.S. Military Member, Lt. Colonel Michael Maharaj. This was particularly special to us because during the pack and move out of the individual's residence, Lt. Maharaj presented each one of our crew with a Challenge Coin. Our crews have received these coins numerous times over the years from Military Members, and these coins are given out by Military Service Members to recognize excellence.

This Medals of America article explores the history of challenge coins. It says, “The history of military challenge coins is widely debated, and their origin is rooted in the history of civilizations from the Romans to the American colonials. But there’s no doubt that military challenge coins are a big part of military culture and increasingly so in the civilian world. Challenge coins are a great way to boost morale, identify allegiance and are a terrific way to extend one’s appreciation by saying “thank you with coin in hand and a firm handshake.”

To top it off, after the move we received this glowing review from Lt. Maharaj:

“Absolutely, and without a doubt the BEST relocation/movers ever. As an Active duty soldier, I have moved over 24+ times in the last 32 yrs of service, and I can tell you these guys are the best movers I have ever had. Professional, FAST, and even arrived on time! Extremely great group of guys who were focused on getting the job done right the first time. Thank you Mark, Jerry, Jason, Kobe, and Corey.” - Lt. Colonel Michael Maharaj
