This vintage tee supports the United States Marine Corps and features a cartoon image of the USMC mascot, Chesty the bulldog. The marines first adapted the bulldog as their mascot after World War I when German soldiers described them as teufel hunden after the devil dogs of Bavarian folklore. Later a recruitment poster featured the image of a Bulldog sporting a US helmet, and in 1922 the first Marine Corps bulldog was enlisted. Chesty is named after Lieutenant General Lewis B. "Chesty" Puller Jr.
