Designed and produced on behalf of the The Liberty Jump Team, the Operation Currahee T-Shirt is inspired by the courage and sacrifice of the Army's first paratroopers who trained at Camp Toccoa, GA beginning in 1942.
One of the most iconic and memorable locations at Camp Toccoa was a small mountain known as Currahee in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountain range, memorialized in the HBO miniseries "Band of Brothers." The mountain – which featured a steep, winding path to the top – was used as a training ground for the soldiers of Camp Toccoa and became a symbol of their strength and determination. The paratroopers were required to run up and down Currahee as part of their training, and as a result, they forged inseparable bonds with one another, derived through enduring physical pain. "3 miles up, 3 miles down."
The name "Currahee" comes from the Native American word "stands alone" – an apt description of the mountain and the soldiers who trained there. Despite the challenges they faced, the paratroopers of Camp Toccoa stood tall, pushed themselves to the limit, and emerged a formidable band of brothers.
