Memorial Day isn't just a 3-day weekend, a time to clean up the local cemetery, or to put flowers on loved ones' graves. Those things are our traditions and are perfectly find. But Memorial Day is one day a year set aside for us to remember our soldiers who have fallen in battle, a day to give thanks for their sacrifice. I'm reminded of the respectful tradition of leaving a coin on a veteran's grave. Being the widow of a veteran - a military retiree, this is very significant to me personally, and I've left many coins on the graves of deceased soldiers, even ones I never knew.
A very special coin left on a grave is a soldier's "challenge coin". Members of different military groups design and purchase identical challenge coins (about the size of a large silver dollar), to show solidarity, or to give to very special friends -- but even more significantly, as bar room insurance. A soldier slaps down their coin as a challenge to other soldiers at the bar. Whoever doesn't have a coin buys the next round of drinks - if every soldier lays down a coin, the challenger buys the round. And now you know!
