The United States Army has seven core values that it incorporates into its culture—loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity, and personal courage. These principles are the building blocks that shape successful military careers. Warrant Officer Candidate School (WOCS) graduates have what it takes to make it in the US Army. Chosen from an elite group of active men and women, these individuals encompass all aspects of excellence and are the embodiment of the values the US Army represents. Custom challenge coins pay tribute to WOCS graduates and make great gifts for their Commencement ceremonies.
Officer Candidate School (OCS) brings together members of all branches of the military (Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines) for twelve weeks of intensive training. Graduates of the school undergo rigorous tests which are designed to train, assess, evaluate, and develop military leaders. Only the strong survive and those who make it to Graduation Day have something to be truly proud of. Custom challenge coins serve as fond reminders of the triumph of the human spirit.
Challenge coins like the one we created for the May 7th graduating class are personalized in a number of ways. In addition to containing the OCS motto of “Honor, Courage, Commitment,” the personalized coins included the names and ranks of the individuals they were designed to honor. It is details like these that give the coins meaning to recipients. The men and women who attended OCS can remember the personal commitment they made to themselves, their families, and to the millions of Americans depending on their military service.
Challenge coins come in a variety of sizes, diameters, shapes, and styles. They tend to reflect the personality of each OCS or WOCS graduating class. Customized coins often contain emblems characteristic to the branch of the military that they represent. For example, the coin shown above has US Army, Navy, and Marine Corps symbols. Each evokes a sense of pride in graduates.
Unlike other forms of memorabilia, challenge coins are long lasting and practical. Because of their smaller size, they do not take up a lot of space and can be housed or displayed easily and affordably. Their rugged exterior and weightiness gives off impresses people who regard the items a higher perceived value. Reward your graduates for all their hard work by calling us today at 1-800-667-5931.
