This awesome tee has a great graphic referencing "Radar" O'Reilly, a very popular character from one of television's most commercially successful shows, M*A*S*H. The tee depicts Radar's devoted teddy bear companion.
M*A*S*H aired from 1972 until 1983 and told the stories of the 4077th MASH (Mobile Army Surgical Hospital), during the Korean War. This show began while the Vietnam War was still ongoing and the program took an open and clear anti-war stance. Radar's popularity was partially due to his innocence, which was juxtaposed with his almost supernatural hearing and senses. This skill allowed him to always be the first to know what was coming next. Radar joined the army right after high school and was insecure about his dependence on his teddy bear. The teddy bear wound up being a symbol of the innocence and youth of many real life soldiers.
The tag says Small, but the shirt fits like a modern unisex adult extra small or XS.
