We'll also offer Custom Handpainted Nose Art Jackets based on a customer's design on both leather "bomber" jackets and motorcycle jackets, as well as custom handpainted logos for businesses. We can also create handpainted leather patches as well.

My name's Abel and in October of 2015, I ordered a Genuine Texas Steerhide "Indy" jacket from US Wings. It was an item I'd long coveted, and I'd done no shortage of searching before I finally squeezed the trigger on buying from US Wings as opposed to a lot of the other companies selling "authentic" Indy jackets. Many claimed to be the true progenitors of the genuine article, since their tailor, or owner, or chief buyer was the second cousin of the the costume assistant from Crystal Skull (or similar nonsense). And a lot of those replica jackets looked great, just like the ones on the US Wings site. But here's the thing...

I didn't want a PROP REPLICA. I wanted my OWN, REAL jacket for REAL ADVENTURE, and according to the scuttlebutt that I turned up during my exhaustive research of vendors, the only jacket that was really meant for real wear and tear was the US Wings, U.S.-made line. So I took the plunge.

Your company does not disappoint.

I've had the jacket for just over two years now, and I've worn it nearly every day that the temperature has been below 60°F (which, in New England, is quite often). It's comfortable, protective, and hard-wearing in nearly every type of weather or situation, and it seems to just get better with age. I'm also pleased to say that, right from the moment of my order, the customer service with US Wings has been exemplary (when my initial choice of jackets was out of stock, and the resupply delayed, Amber, the rep with whom I spoke, gave me a slightly more expensive model with a nicer lining for the same price as my original order).

The real test for the jacket, though, hadn't come until the last few months. I'm an Army Guard UH-60 Blackhawk pilot, and I recently got hired on to fly civilian airliners. As part of the hire, I needed to bulk-up my fixed-wing flight hours, so I was basically given a small plane to fly around and build my time. I've flown almost 10,000 miles since that time, and my Indy jacket has been with me the entire way, standing up to heat, cold, fuel spills, leaking oil, celebratory booze splashing, alternate use as a pillow and blanket, and, in the case of one rainy night in Florida, an ad-hoc umbrella. It has endured everything I've thrown at it, and only keeps looking and wearing better.

So, basically, thanks for making and selling a great product and being excellent to deal with. I look forward to picking up a B-3 jacket from you in the future for small-aircraft flying in the dead of winter here in Maine, but until then, my Indy jacket is holding me in fine stead, and more than measuring up to the real-world adventure that is my life.

Keep up the great work and the excellent quality.

Yours,

Abel

SFC David Hack (CEO of US Wings and a decorated Vietnam veteran and Purple Heart recipient) will be interviewed on FOX News on Veteran’s Day November 11th. He’ll talk about US Wings, his Vietnam experiences, and what he does for military veterans. Sarge was contacted by FOX News and asked to come to their main studio in New York for the interview, but he was unable to do so because of business and other commitments, so the interview will take place at FOX’s studio in Cleveland OH instead. We encourage everyone to tune in and hear what this military veteran and true American patriot has to say! He’ll be featured during the 5:00 PM ET broadcast on Veterans Day, so check your local listings for the channel(s).

SFC Hack volunteered for Vietnam in 1968, joining the 1st Infantry Division and was serving as a sergeant with the Big Red One in Lai Khe, Vietnam, in 1968, when he was awarded the Purple Heart for combat injuries that ultimately ended his military career. He actually suffered injuries on two occasions, taking shrapnel to the leg, arm, face, back and side. He spent a full year in a U.S. Army hospital in Fort Knox and was three years on medical hold.

The Department of the Army asked SFC Hack to be a recruiter, and he was assigned the Akron, Cuyahoga Falls, and Tallmadge, Ohio area.

He gained nationwide recognition as a top Army recruiter. His distinctive recruiting tools, which included a “Sgt. Hack Wants You” T-shirt, a custom Army jeep, and a custom-painted Corvette, helped make SFC Hack the United States’ No. 1 US Army recruiter (out of 12,000 recruiters) from 1969 to 1973. The jeep he used is on display at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, home of the 101st Airborne Division. The only other jeep ever to be enshrined in a U.S. military museum belonged to GEN George S. Patton, whose jeep is enshrined at Fort Knox.

Customized American Made Veteran Apparel!

To honor our military veterans, we now offer Customized American Made Veteran Apparel! Choose your jacket, then add a selection of patches (including branch of service & Vietnam Veteran patches) on the left sleeve, right sleeve, left chest, or back. We currently offer a Black Goatskin A-2 Jacket, a Brown Goatskin A-2 Jacket, and a USA-made MA-1 Jacket (in sage green or black) for customizing. We’ll be adding more apparel to this collection in the future, so check back regularly.

Of course, these jackets can be ordered without patches, but customizing them adds that personal touch and sets them apart from similar garments. It’s a great way to show your military pride and service to this country!

Note: Adding patches to your jacket will make it a custom item; custom items are not returnable or exchangeable. Please allow additional time to affix patches onto custom jackets.

Sgt. Hack and Ken Burns. How are they connected? SFC David Hack was asked to submit for his upcoming special a short recorded interview . Hopefully it will be included in the final cut of Ken Burns The Vietnam War.
More than 10 years in the making, The Vietnam War is Ken Burns & Lynn Novick’s latest and most ambitious documentary series yet. Spanning 10 episodes totaling 18 hours, this highly anticipated and immersive look at the Vietnam War will premiere on September 17, 2017 on PBS. Eschewing “old tropes” from Hollywood movies, the documentary will rely heavily on first-person accounts from Vietnam veterans, civilians, former POWs, North Vietnamese soldiers & Vietcong guerillas, anti-war activists, and journalists for a well-rounded perspective on one of the most controversial & divisive periods in American history.
SFC David Hack (CEO of US Wings and a decorated Vietnam veteran and Purple Heart recipient) encourages everyone to watch this important television event. Although Vietnam vets were subjected to much bitter condemnation during this controversial period, Sgt. Hack was proud to serve his country and hopes this documentary leads to healing and a better understanding of what Vietnam veterans experienced.
You can watch The Vietnam War: A Film by Ken Burns & Lynn Novick on your local PBS station. It will also be available for streaming on the web and through the PBS app for smartphones, tablets, Apple TV, Roku, and Amazon Fire TV

The Battle of Loc Ninh began as the North Vietnamese Army attacked the village on September 11th, 1968. A ferocious battle would last for three days involving Sgt. David Hack and his commanding officer, Major General Keith Ware. The short story of General Ware and Sgt. Hack's involvement as been told in the book, The Life of a Warrior.

The full story of the battle has now been published in the magazine Vietnam, entitled "A Sergeant's Prayer is Answered" by Lt. Colonel Jeff Harvey USA (Ret). This compelling work tells the horror of the three day battle and the units involved. As told in "The Life of a Warrior", Sgt. Hack was severely wounded as he was trying to meet General Ware at the Loc Ninh airstrip via track vehicle. Maj. Gen Ware had departed Lai Khe via helicopter to oversee the battle. His helicopter was shot down killing all aboard.

General Ware's obituary can be found at http://www.arlingtoncemetery.net/klware.htm and further describes the events of Friday September 13th.

It was a very costly battle. The 1st Brigade after-action report tallying the losses for all units recorded American casualties of 70 killed and 488 wounded and NVA losses that included 608 confirmed killed.
