Description

Fighter Squadron 61 (The Jolly Rogers) was a Fighter Squadron of the United States Navy until its disestablishment on on April 15, 1959.

In its two tours of duty in the Solomon Islands, VF-17 had 152 aerial victories and produced 11 aces. VF-17 finished its combat tour on May 10, 1944; the squadron amassed 161 victories, and produced 12 aces. Overall, the two combat tours of VF-17 were credited with 313 victories, the most of any US Navy squadron. VF-17 was re-designated as VF-5B in 1946, and as VF-61 in 1948.

This minimalist design t-shirt harkens back to a bygone era of dogfighting combat pilots.
