The colors of this pin represent the colors of the US Flag, the Star Spangled Banner. Red, White, and Blue are all throughout this pin, which I felt was necessary because of the symbolism of freedom and America. The stars represent the veterans who have passed away, trying to protect us here on the mainland. There is no specific number of stars, because the amount of work these brave veterans put in to protect us cannot even be fathomed. Valiance is a simple concept, the definition is simply: Valor, Bravery, Courage. That is something that veterans show and do every single day.
