WWI Messenger Pouch
Messengers, known as “trench runners”, had the perilous duty of bearing messages from one area or command unit to another.
Now you can own a WWI vintage-inspired Messenger Pouch that combines function and style while conveying American pride. Made in the USA, this dark khaki pouch, with room for keys, wallet, tablet and documents, proudly displays a distressed “U.S” imprint on the outside flap, and includes an exclusive garment label commemorating the U.S. Centennial of World War One.
Get it from the Official US WWI Centennial Merchandise Store.
A portion of all merchandise proceeds support the US WWI Centennial and the National WWI Memorial project.
