Each element of the badge has a specific meaning. It consists of 13 stars representing the original colonies. The torch, burning brightly, in the center symbolizes liberty. The snake is derived from the original ???Don???t Tread On Me??? serpent on the Gadsden flag a symbol of American independence during the 18th century. Together with the torch and breastplate, it indicated readiness to defend. The breastplate is a symbol of strength. The green background is a vestment worn under the breastplate. It s called a Jupon, which represents the Army. The snake grasps, with his tail and teeth, a scroll inscribed "This We???ll Defend,??? the motto of the United States Army. The inscription summarizes the meaning of all the symbols on the badge, depicting the determination, devotion, and constant readiness of the American soldier. *A picture that can be magnified to full screen will be sent upon request. *Buyer is responsible for any maintenance or repairs needed if any. *This item will be sold "as-is" in used condition.
