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. 4.3 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 the 100% cotton shirt 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.

For more information, see Shipping and Returns.

Included with every shirt: A 3" x 4.75" card with the "Orders of the Day" that went to the troops that morning on one side and, on the other side, the handwritten message that General Eisenhower drafted the night before in the event that the operation was not successful. Read more here.


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.

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.

Thanks to April for the photo of her at Normandy on the 75th and to Tamara for the graduation photo.

      Top Notch!

      Purchased 3 different t-shirts. Each was of impeccable quality and truly unique in design. Was pleased to see that they use Next Level Tees (my personal favorite in that they wash & fit well and feel amazing). Will be back for Christmas!
