Alive again

I was aware of the WASPs in World War II, but I did not even come close to knowing the acronym (Women Airforce Service Pilots). I learned via this book about the quality and quantity of contributions to the World War II effort, but also about the sacrifices and lack of recognition to them as an organization and as individuals. I observe the quality photographs in this book bring their stories to us as real people of just a generation or so ago. The quality of the book lends itself well to have out on the table so that our guests might ask about it, and we might have an invitation to inform and give a gift from of the past that might inspire us today.

Great shirt and fast shipping!

Perfect

Everything was perfect. My husband is a Veteran and enjoyed this gift very much. Thank you.

Enjoyed the book I always like reading real history.
One of the cups was completely destroyed, sent you an email when received got no reply, not happy on this
Got no geek patch or black tears.
What I did get intact (book & 1 cup) proved to be quite expensive…………

Loved it so much we bought it twice

My parents brought this shirt back as a souvenir for my 4 year old daughter. She wore it constantly until the day she discovered scissors 😭. She cut it up and was so proud of herself until I freaked out, then we both cried… I would usually take this opportunity to teach a lesson about scissors and say “sorry, you’re SOL.” But this gift was so loved and I felt she learned her lesson when she realized she had ruined it rather than improving it.

Great quality sticker

I bought it to put with my photo book and keepsakes from my trip to visit this incredible memorial.
