HISTORY OF THE CHALLENGE COIN
World War I, American volunteers from all parts of the country filled
the newly formed flying squadrons. Some were wealthy scions attending
colleges such as Yale and Harvard who quit in mid-term to join the war.
In one squadron, a wealthy lieutenant ordered medallions struck in solid
bronze carrying the squadron emblem for every member of his squadron.
He himself carried his medallion in a small leather pouch around his
Shortly after acquiring the
medallions, the pilot's aircraft was severely damaged by ground fire. He
was forced to land behind enemy lines and was immediately captured by a
German patrol. In order to discourage his escape, the Germans took all
of his personal identification except for the small leather pouch around
meantime, he was taken to a small French town near the front. Taking
advantage of a bombardment that night, he escaped. However, he was
without personal identification. He succeeded in avoiding German patrols
and reached the front lines. With great difficulty, he crossed no-man's
land. Eventually, he stumbled onto a French outpost. Unfortunately,
saboteurs had plagued the French in this sector. They sometimes
masqueraded as civilians and wore civilian clothes. Not recognizing the
young pilot's American accent, the French thought him a saboteur and
made ready to execute him. Just in time, he remembered his leather pouch
containing the medallion. He showed the medallion to his would-be
executioners. His French captors recognized the squadron insignia on the
medallion and delayed long enough for him to confirm his identity.
Instead of shooting him, they gave him a bottle of wine.
at his squadron, it became a tradition to ensure that all members
carried their medallion or coin at all times. This was accomplished
through a challenge in the following manner: a challenger would ask to
see the coin. If the challenged could not produce his coin, he was
required to buy a drink of choice for the member who challenged him. If
the challenged member produced his coin, the challenging member was
required to pay for the drink. This tradition continued throughout the
war and for many years after while surviving members of the squadron
were still alive. The fighting men and women of the 48th Intelligence
Squadron proudly continue this tradition.
Organizations even have regulations regarding Military Coins. Here is
an example. A 'Coin Check' consists of a challenge and a response. 1.
RULES: a. The challenge is initiated by drawing your coin, holding it in
the air by whatever means possible and state, scream, shout or
otherwise verbally acknowledge that you are initiating a coin check.
Another, but less vocal method is to firmly place it on the bar, table,
Or floor (this should produce an audible noise which can be easily heard
by those being challenged, but try not to leave a permanent imprint).
If you accidentally drop your coin and it makes an audible sound upon
impact, then you have just "accidentally" initiated a coin check. (This
is called paying the price for improper care of your coin."
The response consists of all those persons being challenged drawing
their coin in a like manner (other organizational coins are invalid).
You must produce a coin with YOUR UNIT'S LOGO on it.
If you are challenged and are unable to properly respond, you must buy a
round of drinks for the challenger and the group being challenged.
If everyone being challenged responds in the correct manner, the
challenger must buy a round of drinks for all those people he
e. Failure to buy a round is a despicable crime and will require that you turn-in your Coin to the issuing agency.
2. Coin checks are permitted, ANY TIME, ANY PLACE'. (Keep OPSEC in mind, be smart!)
There are no exceptions to the rules. They apply to those clothed or
unclothed. At the time of the challenge, you are permitted one-step and
an arms reach to locate your coin. If you still cannot reach it -- SORRY
4. A Coin is a coin. Coins
attached on belt buckles are considered "belt buckles." Coins on key
chains are considered "key chains." Coins placed in a "holder/clasp" and
worn around the neck like a necklace are valid and are considered a

I thought that hat looked good on the web it is awesome, thanks man!!! I
have been retired almost 16 years and am always looking for quality
Navy stuff because I'm proud of my service and proud of the Navy. You
