Challenge Coin

Traditionally, challenge coins are given to prove membership when challenged and to enhance morale.  In practice, challenge coins are normally presented by unit commanders in recognition of special achievement by a member of the unit. They are also exchanged in recognition of visits to an organization.  These coins will be carried by all Gray Ops Instructor’s and will be presented to Gray Ops students who demonstrate, manifest or exhibit improved skills.  Or to an individual who illustrates by example his or her willingness to continue our belief’s.
