Bicycle Rear Derailleur Gaurd

Nice pie plate. Now what is the metal "U" piece attached the rear drop out? Perhaps it is there for protection, as I have snapped one or two derailleurs with a stick coming around the wheel. Google, don't fail me now, or I will be stuck on Sheldon Brown for the next couple of hours...a ha, I was right, it is a guard!
