RAKKASANS
Soldiers of the 187th Infantry Regiment (Airborne) have the distinction of belonging to the only airborne regiment that has served in every conflict since the inception of American airborne forces. Today, the 1st Battalion and 3rd Battalion of the 187th carry on that tradition, assigned to the 3rd Brigade Combat Team (BCT) of the 101st Airborne Division. The 3d BCT carries on the nickname "Rakkasans". 

At the end of WWII, the 11th Airborne Division was selected as the first troops to enter Japan on occupation duty. On August 30, 1945, the 187th Infantry was the first foreign military force to enter Japan in more than 2,000 years. It was in Japan that the regiment earned its nickname. The Japanese had no word to describe these soldiers falling from the sky, so they used the made-up Japanese word "rakkasan" to describe what the American soldiers did. The literal translation means "falling down umbrella men." The locals started calling the troopers "Rakkasans," and the name stuck.

How should I care for my printed garments?

Our advice for the longest life of your custom print, we suggest following the care instructions below:

Machine wash cold, inside-out, gentle cycle with mild detergent and similar colors. Use non-chlorine bleach, only when necessary. No fabric softeners. Tumble dry low. Cool iron inside-out if necessary. Do not dry clean.

NOTE: High-temperature washes can fade and crack the print, and a high-temperature dryer settings can shrink the garment, as well as damage the print.
