The warriors of America's armed forces require more than physical armor to withstand the enemy’s attacks, risking their lives to defend these principles whenever and wherever they come under fire.
These fearless men and women answer duty's call day after day, armed with resolute confidence in their mission and the firm belief that America's cause in the world is right. Wielding the sword of honor and wearing the breastplate of righteousness, America's troops tackle every challenge with steadfast conviction and the desire to achieve absolute victory over tyranny.
This bronze lapel pin, imbued with eye-catching and durable enamel, and finished with an antique patina, pays tribute to the brave men and women of America's military, who risk their lives every day to keep liberty's lamp burning brightly throughout the world. The obverse depicts traditional pieces of armor, including the breastplate, shield, sword, and helmet, and carries the inspirational Ephesians 6:11-13:
“Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.”
