    Default Bundeswehr Paratrooper Wings awarded to USAF

    Hi all I hope you guys can help me. I am looking for any information on US Air Force personnel awarded the West German Bundeswehr Paratrooper Wings. I have a USAF black dress uniform dated June 1969 and named to Capitan F J Kelly. On the jacket is a great looking set of bullion wings. I have found A USAF Brigadier General who's initials match what is in the jacket and was awarded the wings in this same time period he was in Germany. I guess what I am looking for is there any list of the wings being awarded to US personnel?

    I believe any US personal who passed German Jump school were entitled to wear the wings

    I did find that if they were in the country they were awarded in they could. Trying to link this uniform to a certain officer who became a Brigadier General.
