U.S. military members have a long-standing tradition of carrying a unique coin. These coins identified the bearer as part of a particular unit and captured the essence of their affiliation and pride. This tradition began when a young pilot passed out special coins to the members of his squadron as a token of their time together. Soon after, one of the pilots in the squadron was shot down in enemy territory. The enemy soldiers confiscated all his identification except for the special coin, which the pilot was able to conceal in a pouch around his neck. Later this coin would be his key to freedom when a soldier from an allied country recognized the insignia on the coin.
