Saint Medals, Pendants, Necklaces & Charms Dedicated to
Joan of Arc
One thing that many saints have is medals. These medals are meant
to protect individuals with the saint's protection, Saint Joan
of Arc medals are no different. Generally, saints will protect
certain people and things, and those who need this protection
will have saint medals. Those who have Saint Joan of Arc medals
fall into the categories of citizens of France, martyrs, captives,
militants, people ridiculed for their piety, prisoners, soldiers,
Anglophobes, Women Appointed For Voluntary Emergency Service,
Women’s Army Corps.
Joan of Arc medallions can be found around the planet and are
owned by thousands, if not millions of people who want the protection
of this important saint. Saint Joan of Arc medals usually have
a picture of her cast into the front with a message along the
lines of freedom and bravery on the back. For those who need her
protection, the Joan of Arc saint medals can offer peace in dark
times. May soldiers during the French Resistance carried Joan
of Arc's saint medals with them, and even the flag of the resistance
was a homage to Joan of Arc.
There is another medal that is dedicated to Joan of Arc, but
it is not a Joan of Arc saint medal. It is the Order of the St.
Joan D'Arc Medallion and it is given out by the United States
Army as the top volunteerism award from the United States Armor
Association. It was created in 1986 to recognize the best in America's
tankers and troopers. It is usually given to spouses who make
contributions that are deemed significant for morale, welfare
and the spirit of the armor and Calvary unites in the army.
A St. Joan of Arc medallion, and the medal presented from the
United States army are both very important but very different.
While the medal from the army is an honor, having a St. Joan of
Arc medal is something people take very seriously. Saint Joan
of Arc is one of the most popular saints in the Catholic Church,
and there are many people out there who do not leave their homes
without their St. Joan of Arc medal or Joan of Arc medallion.
