On Wednesday night, at the end of our nightly company meeting, we received our challenge coins. It was so funny since we are all sitting in the main passageway and cheering as each member of our company went up to shake hands and receive their coin. Challenge coins are part of a Navy tradition. You are supposed to carry it in your pocket and basically another sailor can whip their coin out and challenge you. You have four paces to whip your coin out and match theirs. The challenge is for who is buying the drinks. You have to be specific when you challenge because it can be for a round of drinks or just one drink. Challenge coins also can be beat by a higher coin. Whoever loses buys the drinks. If you do not have a coin, then you buy. If you are challenged and produce a coin that is of equal or greater value at the challenger’s, then he/she has to buy. It is rather complicated…but I have mine safely in my pocket…just in case!
That I grow in my role as a nurse and always do my best.
That I would follow the Lord wholeheartedly.
I'm Carolyn...am so excited to be starting my nursing career in the Navy. Who knows where this all will take me?!
