MEANING BEHIND THE DESIGN: 

USMC Veteran, Gonzalo Duran’s shirt represents the invisible wounds he and countless other Veterans suffer from. His design symbolizes the "invisible" wounds to his lungs he sustained while deployed and living near burn pits. Once he returned home to NYC following 8 years of dedicated service, his other invisible wounds began to surface. After spending months and months being homeless and unable to re-integrate into society, he discovered that other Veterans shared this same struggle. This discovery led him to start his own organization, Devil Dog USA, Inc. to aid fellow Veterans. His design is a subtle homage to his city and represents a memorial to his brothers and sisters in overcoming both the visible and invisible injuries from life.
