Inglorious Amateurs – Memorial T-shirt

Available for pre-order through 15 January, these Memorial T-shirts honor those members of the CIA who have laid down their lives in defense of this great nation since 2001. Inglorious Amateurs is donating 100% of the profits from this sale to the CIA Officers Memorial Foundation.


November 25, 2014 marked the 13th anniversary of the Battle of Qala-i-Jangi and the date of the first American killed in what became Operation Enduring Freedom. Johnny Micheal Spann was not only the first American killed in the conflict, but also the first CIA officer killed since 9/11. Since that time the Agency has added a total of 33 stars to the Memorial Wall.

The front of the shirt is an artist rendition of Mi-17 helicopter used by the CIA’s Northern Alliance Liaison Team (NALT) just after 9/11. The back is the Memorial Wall located in the lobby of the Original Headquarters Building, with the most recent 33 stars highlighted in remembrance and accompanied by the wall’s heading “IN HONOR OF THOSE MEMBERS OF THE CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES IN THE SERVICE OF THEIR COUNTRY”
