I bought this for my nephew who is being deployed to Iraq in April, 2010. I "googled" patron saint of Soldiers, and found that there are three: St. George, St. Joan of Arc, and St. Michael. I chose St. Michael because that is the name of my nephew's Parish. I only wish that my purchase would have been under different circumstances. Please keep my nephew in your prayers. Thank you.
