Originally designed and produced on behalf of the National World War I Museum in Kansas City, MO, CIVVIESUPPLY’s American Expeditionary Forces t-shirt commemorates the courage of the AEF war-fighters during World War I as they fought to free Europe from the Imperial German Army.
The AEF was a conglameration of military personnel from the US Armed Forces who fought alongside other Allied nations during the war. The AEF was commanded by General John J. Pershing and comprised of approximately 2 million soldiers.
The AEF's entry into the war marked a turning point in the conflict. Before their arrival, the Allies had been struggling to hold their own against the Central Powers. However, with the addition of the AEF, the balance of power shifted in favor of the Allies.
The AEF's first major action in the war was the Battle of Cantigny, which took place on May 28, 1918. This battle was the first offensive action taken by the AEF, and it was a resounding success. The AEF's victory at Cantigny boosted the morale of the Allies and showed the world that the United States was a force to be reckoned with.
Over the course of the war, the AEF fought in several major battles, including the Battle of Belleau Wood and the Meuse-Argonne Offensive. The AEF's bravery and tenacity in these battles helped to turn the tide of the war and brought an end to the conflict.
The legacy of the AEF lives on to this day. The sacrifices made by the soldiers who fought in the AEF helped to cement the United States' place as a global superpower. The AEF's actions in World War I also set the stage for the country's involvement in World War II and helped to shape the course of the 20th century.
The American Expeditionary Forces played a pivotal role in World War I. Their bravery and sacrifice helped to turn the tide of the conflict and set the stage for the United States' place as a global superpower. The AEF's legacy lives on to this day, inspiring new generations to honor their legacy of courage and selflessness.

HONOR THE PAST. INSPIRE THE FUTURE.
Franklin and Thomas — the CIVVIESUPPLY* brothers — grew up in Lexington, South Carolina with a profound appreciation for the United States of America. Stories from their grandfathers — both former Army officers — about numerous family members who fought in almost every major conflict inspired the brothers to attend The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina and later join the US Army. Thomas, an Airborne and Ranger-qualified Infantry officer, served on active duty from 2016 to 2022, and now serves in the SC Army National Guard, where Franklin has served as a Public Affairs officer since 2016.
Their love of country and desire to be apart of something greater than themselves led them to launch CIVVIESUPPLY in 2018. They’d encourage you to join the community of CIVVIESUPPLY patriots in their mission of honoring the past to inspire the future.
