Patriotic Eagle with Silver Rose Charm
I'm not sure if any of you are familiar with the Order Of The Silver Rose. For those not familiar, let me give a brief explanation.
In 1996 a Navy Chief was diagnosed with with inoperable tumors caused by exposure to Agent Orange. Sound familiar? His daughter thought that he should be awarded a Purple Heart for his service, but the guidelines are very stringent for receiving that award. She went to see her father in the hospital with a friend and the friend wanted to bring flowers to the hospital. But he was in the ICU and flowers were not allowed in. So she brought a plastic silver rose to the hospital and the Chief was so happy with the gift that he said in jest, "The Order of The Silver Rose" I would much rather have this than all of the Purple Hearts in the Pentagon. Thus the "order" was born.
In that tradition, I have attached a "silver rose" charm to my patriotic Eagle pin. The silver rose charm is a little out of proportion to the eagle, but I wanted it to clearly be recognized so that if necessary you could proudly explain just what it represents. Shipping to US only
