NCO Sword Star

Sgt Grit: I recently looked up the subject of the Star of David on the NCO Sword. You have two choices as to why it is there.

  1. The Star of David is also known as the Star of Damascus. In ancient times Damascus Syria was known as the fine metals capitol of the world and their trademark was the Star of Damascus aka Star of David.
  2. One definition of the Star of David is “Leader of Men”

Take your pick I could not find any official reference as to why it is there.
