This design was inspired by a Marine Corps lieutenant from Laredo. Fresh out of Aggieland, Kyle Drake served his country valiantly in WWII. After about 6 weeks as a Marine, Drake found himself in the Meatgrinder, near Hill 382, on Iwo Jima. March 6, 1945 was a bad day for his Company. Several NCOs and other men had been lost. Drake has a few guys scouting across an open area between cliffs and boulders. They find a couple of Marines lying out there hit and have retrieve them under fire. They successfully reach the wounded men, but are pinned down by a sniper...Kyle stands to try to direct the group safely out of there and is shot through the jugular.
I wear this shirt because it reminds me of Lt. Drake. Why will you wear it?
SHIRT SPECS: Solid colors are 100% cotton and heathered colors are a cotton/poly blend. This shirt is a perfect weight for sizzling Texas summers and for layering during our bipolar winters. Very soft and runs true to size. Classic fit, so it's not too fitted. Tear away label means the only thing making your neck itch will be the mosquitoes.
