RI boy who made banned toy soldier hat gets medal
"Lt. Gen. Reginald Centracchio, the retired head of the Rhode Island National Guard, gave 8-year-old David Morales a medal called a challenge coin during an appearance on WPRO-AM's John DePetro show."

I'm all for giving a medal, but --- a challenge coin?
For those not familiar, challenging someone to present their challenge coin generally results in heavy drinking.

Answer by Johnny Rico
as long as the 8 year old doesn't use it for its purpose to have another buy the rounds at your bar it will be ok.

I still keep mine on me and i haven't been active army for more years then i care to admit hehe.

    I think a challenge coin is better than an actual medal.

    but what is that bs about a certificate allowing himself to be called BG

    (As long as no one else slaps their challenge coin down on an 8-year old…no drinking need occur)

    and when he gets old enough to drink…if he joins ther service..having a Lt Gen’s coin could be worth a LOT of drinks!
