This WWII Del Valle Bergstrom Field Texas T shirt is a reproduction of an original WWII T shirt taken from a photograph.
The Del Valle Army Air Base was a replacement center for the First Troop Carrier Command, training pilots to transport combat troops and supplies. In March 1943, the base was renamed Bergstrom Army Air Field to honor Captain John August Earl Bergstrom, Austin’s first casualty of war; he was killed at Clark Field in the Philippines on December 8, 1941. The base name was shortened to Bergstrom Field in November 1943.
All of our WWII Tee shirts are hand screen printed, like they were during the war, so variations in colors naturally occur.
Our WWII PT tee shirts have the U.S Spec tag in the neck. The Del Valle Bergstrom Field Texas T shirt is made of 100% cotton and runs true to size. Women’s sizes are available upon request. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
