This awesome vintage shirt features a graphic honoring the United States Air Force's 496th Tactical Fighter Squadron.The 496th TFS was activated in 1942 during WWII and served for two years. The squadron was eventually reactivated as a reserve unit from 1949 to 1951 and served active duty during the Korean War. After that, it was based in Germany and served as air defense for Western Europe until the late 60s. The logo pictured on this tee was introduced during this time. The 496th was last inactivated in the early 90s when its base, Hahn Air Base in Germany, was inactivated.

Tag says medium but fits like a modern unisex adult small.
