US Army Stained Glass Emblem
 
Item #0036
 
Dimensions: 6 1/2" Round
 
$27.00

On June 14, 1775, the Second Continental Congress formed an army to preserve the liberties of America. Since then, the United States Army has become a technologically-advanced strategic force that has served Americans both in peacetime and in war.

 

The official emblem for the U. S. Army bears a Roman cuirass (armor representing strength and defense) resting below a vertical unsheathed sword, called an esponton. The sword, musket and other military implements represent the readiness of the Army to defend. An early American flag faces the Army flag, emphasizing their role in the establishment of the United States.  The helmet is known as a Phrygian Cap, or Cap of Liberty.

 

Even the colors of the emblem represent the Armys mission. Blue stands for loyalty and truth, red for courage, white for deeds worth remembering, and black for determination. The gold in the seal reflects the armys core values of achievement, dignity and honor.
