Default James et al

Has the Glider Patch been retired now that Airborne wear Maroon Berets and the 101 wears black?

The Glider Patch is one of my cherished possesions and would burst with pride wearing it. Hope that it hasn't gone down to the tubes, what a slap in the face of our Airborne forefathers and mentors from WWII. That patch is even on our graduation certificates. Wonder if it's gone off of them now also.

Hope none of this is happening but it would not surprise me.

Packo, a C_ _ t Cap Paratrooper!

PS guys, Lesbian sheik is now to wear Jump Boots (Cocrans)

Thumbs up STEVE,

haven't had a chance to post much lately. Yeah, made a couple of jumps along with the equipment. Very impressive and exciting, just as you described. Pretty impressive to see a fully loaded Jeep or an artillery piece sucked out of the back of a plane and then dangling from a couple of T-50s.

Like James, I salute and thank all you Riggers for getting us safely to the ground.

AIRBORNE ALL THE WAY, BRO!!

Cool ANDY

For sure caught Uncle Sam in another lie. I definately walked to work alot more than I got to fly and get dropped off to it. But, they still payed me $55/mo. jump pay to remind me that I was still abit higher on the evolution scale than a straight-leg .

Unhappy ORIGINAL TOM

Yeah, I'm afraid the Glider Patch disappeared when maroon berets were issued. A shame. That was our only link to our WWII brothers. Glad it occurred after I was out. Never cared for berets on guys. Got in a couple bar fights in Fayetteville for me and my Buds expressing this opinion to some new Green Beenies .
