Read more about the hangtag here.

This same History Nerd design with a World War II paratrooper is available as a women's v-neck shirtcrewneck sweatshirt, and a sticker.

A similar design,  with the words "D-day June 6, 1944" and a WWII Paratrooper is also available as a magnet as well as a bookmark.

The shirt: We’re offering your choice of fabrics and colors:
  • 100% cotton Made in the USA shirt in Military green — Grown, knitted, dyed, and sewn in the USA. 5.4 oz.  XS - 3X. See size chart.
  • Our standard 4.3 oz. Poly-Cotton shirt that gets rave reviews. Our softest shirt. It's also our thinnest and lightest. It is very high-quality and long-wearing, but it is thin and light. Lots of people love them, which you can see in the reviews, but if you judge t-shirt quality based on weight or thickness, do not get this one. Instead, get one of the two 100% cotton shirts above. In Light olive. XS - 4X. See size chart.

Note that the $3 price difference for the 100% cotton Made in the USA shirt is our higher wholesale cost; there is no additional margin.

Shipping: $4.95, regardless of the number of shirts you order, so order one and all the rest ship for free.

More on the commemorative hang tag: A 3" x 4.75" piece of paper, in color, on uncoated stock. Read the complete text here. 

 Our mission: Your purchases support our mission to engage people with local history and to support historic sites and history organizations across the country.

Thanks to Ben Powers for his helpful suggestion about the shirt color—not as dark as the shirt we use for the WWII soldier shirt—and for additional information for the hang tag that helps deliver an even more powerful account of what actually happened.

And thanks to Larisa for getting this all going by pointing out the anniversary last fall and encouraging me to come up with a special design even though, up until then, almost all of our designs were focused on the Revolutionary War.

And thanks for Tamara Hunt for the photo.
