Patron Saint of Armor
Several cavalry offices approached me to sculpt an image of St. George slaying the dragon. You see, St. George is the patron saint of the U. S. Armor branch. . Recently Armor moved to Ft. Benning, Georgia, and opened a gallery in the Infantry Museum. To my mind, it is the most vibrant and authentic of the military displays. My work, showing St. George slaying the dragon from horseback with a lance, is positioned in a handsome case just outside the entrance to the Gallery. Shown here is one of my benefactors, Duke Doubleday, together with another recipient of the Order of St. George.
