The predecessor of the Central Intelligence Agency and modern Special Operations Forces, the legendary Office of Strategic Services conducted activities including conducting sabotage, collecting intelligence, organizing and training resistance groups in Europe along with providing major support to anti-Japanesegroups throughout Southeast Asia.
Consisting of various specialized detachments and branched, the OSS became a major influence in the formalizing and creation of future Special Operations Force Branches - even the US Special Operations Command insignia is a direct variation of the OSS Arrowhead.
For those of you who think big and constantly create waves in the world around you, the OSS mug reminds us of the major efforts this organization undertook to combat evil and ensure Freedom was preserved for future generations.
These 12oz coffee mugs are a continuation of our commitment to supporting American businesses, quality and craftsmanship.
The mugs are from Deneen Pottery, a family company in operation since 1972, and although each mug is very similar they are individually hand made so no two pieces are exactly alike!
The clay for these mugs was invented by Peter Deneen and the mix for these mugs comes from mines in Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky.
All stoneware is lead free and food safe. Being kiln fired to 2100ºF, each piece is durable and safe for the microwave, dishwasher, oven and freezer.
