Custom Air Force T-Shirts

Veterans Day on November 11th is the official day to honor our military veterans, and our customers have taken the opportunity to do so with custom military t-shirts – like Mrs. Pearson’s 3rd grade music class in Oklahoma. Since 2005, her students have presented a program for Veterans Day, complete with “costumes” made especially by and for them at CustomInk…

Here’s the class at their 2009 presentation:

US Flag Freedom Class T-Shirts

But you don’t have to save your military support for the holiday, and sometimes a custom T is just the boost our troops need. Here are some of our brave soldiers sporting their custom-designed duds:

  1. Who says you can’t have camaraderie on an aircraft carrier at sea? Not these folks – a unit on the USS George Washington.
  2. These mechanics for a medical unit in Iraq gave CustomInk a ”a big hooah” for their shirts.
  3. One of the Army officers called this team of Airmen and Soldiers, “outta control” one day and the name stuck – so they put it on shirts and wore them in Afghanistan.
  4. The 451st Air Expeditionary Wing Aircrew of the US Air Force call themselves “The Rockpile” and said their shirts “brought a lot of joy in the desert” at Kandahar Airfield in Afghanistan.
  5. According to the leader of the third platoon, Comanche Co., out of the 4th BCT, 1st Armored Division of the US Army,”My soldiers sport their shirts all over Iraq.”
  6. The Combat Advisor Team – or “Federales” – in Northern Iraq wear shirts to show their authority because they “don’t need no stinkin’ badges!”
  7. With less than two months to go in their tour, the team at the Multinational Military Trauma Center at Bastion Hospital in the Helmand Province of Afghanistan got shirts to commemorate their time together “providing world class care to those in need.” In 110-degree weather, these soldiers are standing on the balcony of Saddam Hussein’s daughter’s palace looking toward his palace.
  8. This eight man team is sitting on top of laundry equipment in Iraq. Why? They provide showers and laundry services for the soldiers there.
  9. Several members of a US Army security team working out of southern Baghdad – headed home at the end of the year!
  10. This team, made of Army, Air force and civilians, wore t-shirts to show their team spirit while in Afghanistan.
  11. One of the Soldier’s mothers was diagnosed with breast cancer so the Headquarters & Headquarters Company, 1st Battallion, 116th Infantry of the US Army National Guard held a 24-hour Race for the Cure – literally running for 24 hours! – while deployed in Iraq.

The holidays are just around the corner and it’s a great time to send care packages overseas. These generous organizations can help:
