Custom Coins

The custom challenge coins have a great history. They were initially given out to all the officers after they started their military career. These coins were to be kept with the officers at all times. To make sure that these coins were kept with them all the time the senior officials kept a check on their junior officers at different times during duty and non duty hours. These surprised checks made the officers aware of the fact that they had to keep the coin with them in every condition. The officers were initially just checked but gradually if they were found without there coins for a few times they were punished in the military way. They military way of punishment is quite tough and it is such that all the other officers of the unit also get to know what is happening and why. This way the punishment is not just a lesson for the suffering officer but the other officers also learn from it to make sure they obey all the rules. The custom challenge coins are challenged in two different ways:

  1. by calling out verbally when the officer calls out verbally for the others to show their coins all the people around them also get to know what the call has been made for.
  2. by snapping the coin hard on a flat surface this is kind of a silent challenge how ever it is known by all those officers who are present near them.

All the officers are supposed to carry their coins in case of an emergency.
