This vintage t-shirt honors the United States Marine Corps with a graphic of their mascot, Chesty the Bulldog. The bulldog is named for Lewis "Chesty" Puller, the most decorated Marine in US history. Chesty was a Marine Corps officer and he served in World War II, the Banana Wars, and the Korean War. Although he died over 50 years ago, Chesty remains a mythical figure of sorts for the Marines, as he represents what every soldier strives to become.
In honor of the man, who was known for being barrel chested, the Marines adopted Chesty the Bulldog as their official mascot. Chesty the 16th is currently serving in the iconic role. Each Chesty trains their successor in the proper behavior for parades, ceremonies, and meet and greets.
Tag says medium but fits like a modern unisex adult small.
