Ft. Bragg, NC, is known for the Home of the Airborne and Special Operation Force. It houses the XVIII Airborne Corps and the 82nd Airborne Division, the U.S. Army Special Operations Command, and the U.S. Army Parachute Team (the Golden Knights). It is the largest military base and deemed the center of the military realm.
About 54,000 active troop members are living at Ft. Bragg.
With the current upheaval between Russia and Ukraine and in the world, Fort Bragg’s 82nd Airborne troops were sent to “deter and assure” and are now helping at the border of Poland and Ukraine to assist refugees fleeing the conflict.
We are proud of our armed services and support our military families!
Back here at home in the USA, we are all thinking about the cost of gasoline, the increase in the federal interest rate, and the uncertainty of what lays ahead. Let’s not forget about the 3000 Fort Bragg troops in Poland. We need to hold our soldiers and their families close at heart!
All of these things have people at home concerned. Prices continue to increase, and the U.S. dollar seems not to keep up with inflation. With things quickly changing, it is important to create a hedge against inflation by setting aside gold, gold coins, silver, diamonds, and other precious metals that will hold their value over time.

Gold prices are higher than they have ever been. On March 8, 2022, the spot price of gold was $2,055 compared to August 2021, when it hit a record high of $2,051. Uncertainty over the Russian-Ukraine war, the support of the USA in Poland and neighboring NATO countries, the federal interest rate, and the soaring cost of goods are driving the price of gold.
Inflation, supply and demand, and economic uncertainty have affected the price of gold throughout history. A gold coin made of 24k gold will bring more money now due to its high price than when it was minted.
Gold, silver, and precious metals hold their value in weak economic environments, and therefore investors are flocking to buy gold and silver bullion and gold coins to protect their wealth.
