It is quite an honor to receive military coins from any of the military services, may it be in the navy, coastguards, army, and marine. We know the stories behind each challenge coin – the stories of valor and sacrifices placed online for the sake of the country.
Not every citizen can get hold of the military coins:
You have to go through extreme physical and mental training before receiving one. Others, even after graduating from the military training do not receive such coins. They wait to get deployed so they can have these coin representations that will serve as part of their identity.
The story of how a military challenge coin started was inspiring and it became a tradition because of the story of the miracle that happened in the past involving it. Soldiers may lose all documents that represent them in the course of carrying out their duty, but keeping the symbol and representation of membership in the elite force is as well as maintaining those identifications. If you haven’t heard about that story yet, then here is a quick recount on how the items came into existence.
During World War 1, accordingly, Americans, including the rich college students enlisted in the military. One rich lieutenant has coins engraved with the unit’s emblem made and he distributed it to all the members of his air force squadron. During an air assault, one pilot was forced to land behind enemy lines. He was captured and all his documents and proof of identity were taken by the enemy to prevent his escape. Only the coin which he kept in a small pouch and placed about his neck were not taken.
When the opportunity to escape was presented, he left by foot and crossed the enemy lines secretly until he reached the other side (French side). The American soldier’s speaking tone is different and he did not have anything to identify him and so the French thought he was a spy. He was about to be gunned, but it was prevented when he presented his coin to the gunners. One of his captors were able to identify the military coin and it was validated. Instead of being killed, he was then given wine to drink.
From that story, we don’t know if the same will be retold or would happen to any of our country’s protectors. What is important is the valor, integrity, and bravery that these military coins represent and what these items mean to our soldiers. These are made with designs that include the military logo, core values, and even the symbols of their commitment, thus, we have committed to the same mission.
