I was at Fort Polk in the early 60s never did see one of these cats or even hear one.
Brought back memories from my basic training days at Ft Polk 6-1974. I forgot that we called it Tigerland but I will never forget the experiences being a 17yo in basic training there during that time.
I would like the tiger land emblem on the back. Thank you
I love it Its a great shirt
Trained at polk, in Nam our base camp was ironically named Tigers lair
I'm a Vietnam combat veteran with two Purple Hearts with the second one awarded after being hit by an enemy mortar which almost killed me. Spent three weeks on the hospital ship USS Repose AH-16 and then was flown back to the US. A horrific event in my life after being drafted. Did go through Advanced Infantry Training at Tigerland in Fort Polk, LA. Love the tee-shirt and am impressed with the quality and the fact that it is Made in the USA!!
I got the t-shirt for a buddy who did 4 tours in Nam, he had an all expenses paid tour of Tiger Land, he loves the shirt!
The stores I've been telling about being there. Now make me laugh.
In your face, jumps out at you !
well made and comfortable shows my fort Polk pride
I was stationed at Ft. Polk from March 1963 until October 1964 so it was great to see this shirt. I was with the 46th Engineers and we knew nothing about Tigerland. I found out about it when I saw the movie "Tigerland" and was surprised to find out about it. I'd really like to see one of Camp Tuto, Greenland where I spent four months with the 46th at the base of the icecap north of Thule AFB.
Never thought I would see a Tigerland shirt. I'm impressed and very pleased.
Quick and easy . Thanks, Frank
As always, the folks at 11Bravo delivered an excellent article of clothing promptly at a great price. I have bought several items from them and will keep coming back. Give them a try, you will not be disappointed.
As an alumni of Infantry School (B-5-3) on North Fort Polk I was glad to see this shirt. Tigerland was still used for trained in Patrolling but the Vietnamese Village was no longer in use at that time (1974). Not many remember those days but I sure do. Glad for this reminder of a challenging route to my prized Blue Braid.
