DJH will soon start issuing Challenge Coins in honor of students who
show Ranger Excellence.  A Challenge Coin originated with the military
as proof of a person belonging to specific unit.  As tradition states
with Challenge Coins, the coin is suppose to be kept with the person at
all time and presentable when asked. For students at Darby, it is a
constant reminder of what it means to be a Ranger and Leading The Way!
