About the “Challenge Coin”
The inclusion of an exclusive, limited edition (of 500) “Challenge Coin” is something that means a lot to me personally. Not only because of the history behind them, but because of why I operate The Black Vault.
There are varying stories about a “challenge coin” and their origin, but some historians believe the true concept of them date back to the Roman Empire. Soldiers within the Roman Empire were given special coins to recognize their achievements. In more modern times, “challenge coins” were given during World War I and beyond. Within modern American military service, just like in ancient Roman times, “challenge coins” are given to recognize certain achievements during military service. In addition to service commendations, some organizations will also give them as a symbol of a visit by a person to their headquarters etc. They hold many meanings, and they are often very special to the ones giving them, and to the ones receiving them.
For The Black Vault? I am offering it to those first 500 initially taking the challenge to “Discover the Truth.” I feel my book challenges the normal, everyday thinking, about UFOs. Many want a “smoking gun” or a document that says, “aliens are real.” That makes it easy to accept but I am sorry to say it doesn’t exist. But do not let that deter you — the real “smoking gun” just involves a little bit of thinking — and trust me, that way is much more fun and educational.
Research is sometimes difficult, and sometimes challenging. My aim with this book is to show you, with REAL evidence, that the cover-up is real and it is easily provable. The “challenge coin” represents my challenge to you, to look at the real evidence, and with the use of only common sense, look logically at one of the most intriguing topics that pushes the boundary of the human realm of understanding. You may find your own “smoking gun” within the text of these pages, as I believe these pages, comprise the box of bullets for that gun. It comes down to what YOU need, on your journey, to accept this bizarre reality as something extraordinary. THAT is the “smoking gun” and it is different for each of us.
“Discover the Truth” is emblazoned onto the coin as this has been a quiet catch-phrase and tagline for The Black Vault since DAY ONE. Some designs of my site have had it in the headline, while others have not. It’s a phrase that has a lot of meaning for me, and I hope, in time, for you too. Truth is hard to come by. It is hard to find. It is a CHALLENGE.
I designed this coin for you to symbolize your journey in understanding this phenomenon, and a token of remembrance that sometimes all you have to do is look at the evidence in front of you to prove something big. It’s there, we just need to find it.
Now — I CHALLENGE you to do just that — and DISCOVER THE TRUTH within this book.

In 1996, John Greenewald, Jr. began researching the secret inner workings of the U.S. Government at the age of fifteen. He targeted such agencies as the CIA, FBI, Pentagon, Air Force, Army, Navy, NSA, DIA, and countless others.
Greenewald utilized the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to gain access to more than two million pages of documents. This archive includes information relating to UFOs, the JFK Assassination, chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons, and top secret aircraft. He took the millions of pages, and over the course of more than two decades, has built an archive known around the world, as The Black Vault.
Inside The Black Vault: The Government’s UFO Secrets Revealed takes you on a journey within the secret world of unidentified aerial phenomenon that has plagued the military since at least the 1940s. Declassified records prove that the UFO topic is one of the most highly classified and most elusive subjects the U.S. Government has ever dealt with. Each chapter explores various agencies and their documents, and Greenewald breaks down the meaning of why some of the most important documents are relevant to proving a massive cover-up.
Along with declassified documents, Greenewald outlines the struggle it took him to get them. No other topic has proven so difficult, in more than 8,000 FOIA requests that he has filed. He explores why that might be and meets skeptics and debunkers head on, outlining why some of their more prominent rebuttals for it all cannot be true.
