- Our standard 4.3 oz. Poly-Cotton shirt in Light olive 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. XS - 3X. 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.
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.

Ordered the Paratrooper 75th anniversary tee & sticker. Shirt fits true to size & my son, who is majoring in history, loves both.
Great shirt .. I’m a big guy so had to have a 4xl but fits fine
Shirt was well made, very good quality for the price; personally I’d have preferred more color options, but understand the color choice particularly fit that event. I love the different historical events for which things are offered- best totality of choices s of any website I’ve seen and my information isn’t shared(very important to me)
This is a good-looking shirt, well made, and has a great design. I highly recommend it to anyone looking.
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!
Great item. You need to reissue the Market Garden shirt
I have been looking at this shirt for months, and snatched it up as soon as it was available! I love the design, and the material is very comfy.
Great product and fast shipping!
