This Cross consists of three bars, with the lowest one being slanted. The top bar represents the INRI sign placed over Jesus' head; the slanted bar represents the eternal fate of two thieves which were on the Crosses beside him. The thief on the left rejected Christ whereas the thief on the right confessed Christ, and was promised a place with him in Paradise. This Genuine U.S. Military Issue Orthodox Cross is precision carved out of non-magnetic, non reactive, brite finished, 100% 304 stainless steel. It has a 24" stainless steel dog tag chain.
