This shirt was created to help raise awareness about the large number of Veterans committing suicide and Veterans with PTSD. Wear this shirt to let our Veterans know that you stand with them and that they are not alone. Proceeds from the sale of this shirt will be used to help raise awareness about Veteran suicide and PTSD. Contact us if you are making a large order.

For most vets and servicemembers, IGY6 has a very deep and personal meaning. It originates among combat veterans, for whom “I’ve Got Your Six” could literally be a matter of life or death. We feel that people who have never served in the military cannot understand much of what we go through, the loss of “home” and sense of self we face in civilian life, let alone the trauma experienced by those who served in combat. We will assume that anyone bearing the IGY6 has served; for a Veteran, especially one in crisis, finding out that the person is a civilian could make their situation worse. If you have never served and still want to show support we have an option with PTSD.
