Military T-Shirt Sales! Cotton T-Shirts, Sizes Small - 3XL

This commemorative shirt design is based on the Allied Invasion Star which appeared on most military vehicles that landed during the Invasion of Normandy. The D-Day invasion took place on a 45 mile (72 Kilometer) front. The ‘Star’ enabled air and ground troops to best recognize if the vehicle was a friend or foe from a distance.   

Using stencils to paint these stars resulted in so-called “lazy stars or lazy circles,” because of the gaps created in the circle from the stencil. Despite regulations prescribing the appropriate size of stars for specific vehicles, the stars on the top of vehicles were often made as large as possible, with the hope that they would be visible to Allied aircraft and would help prevent friendly fire incidents.

The Germans used the Balkankreuz which is a straight-armed cross that was first introduced in 1916–1918 and later became the emblem of the Wehrmacht (German Armed Forces) and its branches from 1935 until the end of World War II.

We liked the way the Allied invasion star broke into five sections, perfect to fit the five, D-Day beaches of Normandy.
