Retreat, Hell! We Just Got Here!

Warrior Soul Fitness

This famous phrase was uttered by Major Lloyd Williams of 2nd Battalion, 5th Marines during the Battle of Chateau-Thierry. When advised by a French Officer to retreat, then Captain Williams replied, "Retreat, Hell! We just got here!." 

Williams was posthumously promoted to Major after being killed during that battle and was recommended for a Medal of Honor and the Army's Distinguished Service Cross, neither of which were granted. He instead received three Silver Star citations for his actions. 

The figure on the tee shirt is not Major Williams. Rather, it is a drawing of the Iron Mike statue at Parris Island, which commemorates the Marines who fought during World War I. We thought it carried the spirit of the statement and all Marines who fought so valiantly during that war and in every war the United States has been involved in since that time.
