The father of my cousin was an army years ago, and now his son is following his steps somehow because he is also a navy. I am not sure though if he inherits his father Army coins when his father died. I have seen one of those before but when his father, my uncle died, I did not see it at all. I hope my cousin kept it since it is a legacy from his father to him. There are some Army coins you can found online though, if you have a son who wants to be an army, it would a nice gift to him when he graduated.
