    i found out from another forum i posted these on that these were actually worn as a windup by US airborne troops when they got a new commander

    LOL! We use to put those "bush jumper" wings on instead of our jump wings for change of command ceremonies at Bragg. Oh how the Article 15's flew around afterwards. Nice pic. I appreciate all of the memories that it brought back.


    note to mods/admin if these are felt to be offensive in anyway then please delete this thread as this is the last thing i want to do.
