Awarding Officer reads the Award History:

"Saint Michael is referred to in Biblical writings as an archangel who wages war against evil. He is known as the heavenly prince or champion charged specifically to guard and defend others. He is legendary as the leader of angels who fought a war in heaven and conquered the dragon and cast it down from the skies. Saint Michael's battles are an allegory of the struggle between good and evil. Throughout the centuries, Saint Michael has been depicted with a sword fighting or standing over a conquered dragon."

"The legendary image of Saint Michael defeating the dragon exemplifies the bravery and gallantry that we associate with the aviation Soldier. His warrior qualities demonstrate the boldness and swiftness of aviation on the battlefield. As a brave warrior and protector, Saint Michael is the embodiment of courage and justice and is an appropriate symbol of excellence within Army Aviation."
