Our original design lists all of the battles in WWII in which the United States was involved.

"My son is a history teacher and of course he loved it. Your items are awesome. Thank you." — Linda W. ★★★★★

Starting with the bombing of Pearl Harbor through to V-E Day and V-J day, the design also ncludes, prominently, this quote from FDR's address to Congress and the nation following the attack on Pearl Harbor:

We will make it very certain that this form of treachery shall never again endanger us.

The shirt:

  • 100% cotton Made in the USA shirt in your choice of two colors: White and Dark tan — Knitted, dyed, and sewn in the USA. 4.4 oz. S - 3X. See size chart.

Also included:

A card that accompanies the shirt includes an image of the first page of FDR's speech with his notations, including the change he made that added "infamy."

The other side has a rarely-scene photo of the signing of the surrender documents aboard the USS Missouri—it's from the angle of a sailor high above, not the familiar official photo—and of the flyover, along facts on the number of planes and ships that participated that historic day.

This design is also available as an inspirational and educational poster, sticker, and a magnet.


Historical Background on the Design

Our original design commemorates WWII, with all of the battles in which American forces were involved listed in order, starting with the attack on Pearl Harbor through to V-E Day and the dropping of the atomic bombs and V-J Day.

For those shirts with the main design on the back, the historic 48-star American flag that was flown from the stern of U.S. Navy vessel Landing Control Craft 60, the sole guide boat at Utah Beach, is on the left chest. The years of America's involvement, 1941-1945, are on either side of the flag.

May 8, 1945 marks V-E Day, Victory in Europe, when the “cease fire” took effective on 11:01 pm Central European Time. The first signing of surrender occurred on May 7, 1945 in Rheims, France; a second surrender ceremony took place on May 8, 1945 in Berlin. 

September 2, 1945 marks V-J Day, Victory in Japan, when Japan signed the surrender documents aboard the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay.

Note: A few products, such as antique Oriental rugs, have special shipping policies stated on the product page. For those products, the information below does not apply.

For shipments to addresses within the U.S. (scroll down for International shipping)

For hooded and crewneck sweatshirts, mugs, and blankets, the shipping cost is $8.95. 

Our flat rate shipping means you can add two or more t-shirts, sweatshirts, or caps for no additional shipping charge.

Timing

We try to ship orders within three business days of receiving them. This applies to in-stock items. Framed items or items requiring personalization may take up to two weeks longer. If there is an extended delay, it will be noted on the product page.

We close for a week over Independence Day and Christmas. A notice will appear at the top of every page of the site in advance of this closure.

We ship most orders via USPS, so if the post office is closed, we won't be shipping orders that day.

If you need to receive your order by a certain date, such as to give as a gift or have for a trip, we recommend ordering at least two weeks in advance, especially if you are using USPS shipping. 

If you're looking for reliable, on-time deliveries, we strongly suggest upgrading to "UPS 3 Business Day Select Shipping."

Additional notes:

  • When fulfillment takes longer, such as around the Christmas holidays, we'll put up an announcement in the site and will list recommended shipping deadlines below.
  • If an item is out of stock, we will contact you.
  • If one of your items is an advance order, that will be noted on the product page along with an estimate of when it will ship. If that estimated date changes, the product page will be updated.

        Regardless of the number of items you order, the shipping price is still fixed at $5.95. Our flat rate shipping means you can add another t-shirt, cap, or book for no additional shipping charge.

          WWII Victory Shirt

          This is the third shirt that I have purchased for my history loving father. This specific purchase was a perfect Father’s Day gift. He loves the quality of the shirts in addition to the historical messages or images. He is always saying how soft the shirts are! If you know a history lover, these shirts or products are always a win!
