Oct. 8, 1918, World War I on the Western Front.
Hell on Earth is the only way to put it.
The chances of survival for anyone on either side of the war were slim.
But that day Army Cpl. Alvin C. York saved over a hundred troops (on both sides) from annihilation. He did it by leading a charge against the Germans that resulted in 20 enemy casualties by him alone and capturing 132 German soldiers with just seven men.
“As soon as the Germans opened fire on me, I began to exchange shots with them. In order to sight me or to swing their weapons on me, the Germans had to show their heads above the trench, and every time I saw a head I just touched it off.” All the time I kept yelling at them to come down. I didn’t want to kill any more than I had to. But it was they or I. And I was giving them the best I had.” — York
It earned him the Medal of Honor.
So, next time you tell your barber to take “just a little off the top,” think of York. The certified BAMF who took a little off the top and swung a battle to victory.
Or, you can wear this light-weight, silky-smooth Tee, and honor his feat once a week. Perhaps even two depending on your funk.
