Product Description

They are also know as "That MF'er" and are the meanest soldiers on the planet. Frequently Trooper's get reamed out and have to do extra PT for the simpliest of violations(talking-usually saying "what did he say") of the course requirements. In the Inset is what everyone man and woman alike wants on their uniforms. "JUMP WINGS" But, As any Airborne Qualified Soldier knows these men got them through the course and they survived. There is a trooper who is the "Keeper of the Wings" (normally the youngest soldier of the evolution) and his duty is to wear the Jump Wings inside his shirt not visable to anyone. Why, you must think. Your Black Hat will on command ask the Keeper of the Wings to show them. That is the inspiration the Wings, when you're beaten into the gound dead tired and dont think you can do this one second longer a Black Hat will have the keeper show the Wings. And from somewhere deep down inside you continue because you want that couveted symbol that you earned saying you are a United States Paratrooper. There is no greater pride! Its not for everyone and that is fact. upwards of 20-30% will DOR dropped on request. Its a pride you carry all your life. Your part of a brotherhood! There is no feeling like it!

From getting off the Bus at "Ground School" to Getting their Jump Wings "PUNCHED-IN" at the end of "Jump Week" and graduation they are men no Airborne Trooper ever forgets. In the late 60's and early 70's Jump Wings were "Punched-In" or Blood-Wings ( see below video )meaning the two pins that pertrude through the uniform that the attachments go on are actually punched in too you skin. By your Black Hat!

Then and only then you're considered AIRBORNE! And then, Your Black Hat may say "Good Job Troop my name is "Brett" ( the only kind words you'll ever hear & that can bring a tear to the eye of toughest Troopers--as its doing right now 43 yr's later thinking about it) Then you're part of a huge Brotherhood...

All during training you run everywhere and to cadence. But mainly its "Who are you" reply "Airborne" & "How Far" reply "ALL THE WAY" all at the top of your lungs... never thinking what lay ahead!
