This campaign has ended
The World War II Foundation is leading the way in honoring our veterans by helping them tell their stories through a series of documentaries. These hour-long documentaries will be shared with schools, libraries, and American Public Television (PBS affiliates around the country) so that a new generation will recognize the sacrifices the WWII generation made to preserve our freedom.
It is important to get these stories told for many reasons, but time is against them. As many as 1,000 WWII vets are passing on each day, 30,000 a month. We are very passionate about education and our veterans and this cause serves both very well. Our veterans are the heart and soul of this country and the reason for many of the liberties we all celebrate today. This generation of veterans is truly the greatest generation! Listening to their stories will help future generations to gain perspective not only on war time service but also on how to live life. These men are heroes!
About The Design
The World War II Foundation has partnered with Serket to dedicate a memorial in Normandy, France recognizing Major Richard D. Winters, the leadership principles he embodied and all of the American soldiers who served during the Normandy phase of Operation Overlord. Serket and the WWII Foundation are trying to raise money to send WWII veterans to this dedication.
One look at the statue and we knew that Major Richard Winters likeness had to be on the shirt. The background is an actual map from the 4th Infantry Division. It depicts the landing spot at Utah Beach and marching directions. The back of the shirt lists all seven divisions who lost men on that day. These Division were: 101st Airborne, 82nd Airborne, 4th Infantry, 90th Infantry, 1st Infantry, 29th infantry, and Rangers.
Sara’s Sizing Suggestions…..sss….
The fit of this shirt is true to size. It is 100% Cotton and has a very soft feel that will last through several washes. I love this shirt because it has plenty of room and is very breathable. This is a vintage design and it is on a heather grey shirt so make sure to read the care instructions and wash this shirt inside out.
