The phrase comes from a toast written by General John Stark, New Hampshire's most famous soldier of the American Revolutionary War, on July 31, 1809. Poor health forced Stark to decline an invitation to an anniversary reunion of the Battle of Bennington. Instead, he sent his toast by letter:
LIVE FREE OR DIE: Death is not the worst of evils.
With the recent events unfolding around the country and even around the world, we wanted to come up with something that represented, in a subtle way, what it means to be a Law Enforcement Officer. “All Give Some, Some Give All” summed up what we wanted to get across in a simple, but powerful statement.
The message is delivered in distressed impact lettering above and below the universal law enforcement symbol, the Thin Blue Line. On the right sleeve, there’s also a white American Flag, properly displayed, with a blue line as one of the stripes.
The shirt itself is made with Gildan DryBlend 50% cotton / 50% DryBlendPoly shirts for a lasting soft and comfortable wear.
