At age 22, Tom Rice left Coronado, California, to volunteer and defend his country with the 101st Airborne Division. On the night of June 6th, 1944, Staff Sergeant Rice jumped into Normandy. Upon exiting, Tom tore his arm up to his wrist and lost his brand new prized A-11 wrist watch.
Together with Tom Rice, we re-created his lost watch and proudly present the 101st Airborne Division Limited Edition Collection to celebrate the exceptional service of these great men and to honor their sacrifice, bravery, and resilience.
