There are many examples of traditions that build camaraderie in the military, but few are as well-respected as the practice of carrying a challenge coin—a small medallion or token that signifies a person is a member of an organization. It's nearly impossible to definitively know why and where the tradition of challenge coins began. One thing is certain: Coins and military service go back a lot farther than our modern age. Even though challenge coins have broken into the civilian population, they're still a bit of a mystery for those outside the armed forces.
I just wanted to send you an email and let you know that our coins have arrived in Afghanistan and we are very happy with your product. Thank you again for all of your assistance and time with this process for us.
Very Respectfully, - MA2 (IDW) Martin,Jonathan U.S. NAVY CUSTOMS HOTEL CO., KAF LPO
