I received Orig. Pilot 57 mm Gold and a free USCG baseball cap via UPS this evening. As usual very fast, well packaged delivery. Product as described. Thanks again.

Just wanted to say thanks for all the help in getting me fitted for my new A-2 2000. It is a great jacket and worth the wait. I could not be more pleased with the final product.
I received the bomber jacket today that I ordered the other day and I love it!! It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for for years – and more! The craftsmanship, stitching, softness, style, I can’t believe the quality for the price. It is worth every penny (and more). I’m sure I’ll be looking on your web site from time to time and I have no doubt I’ll be purchasing more merchandise. I also appreciate both hats you sent. The USAF Veteran hat is a high quality hat that I will wear proudly. And I look forward to reading your book that was enclosed. You’ve accomplished quite a lot in your lifetime so far. Thanks again for your service in the military and for what you are doing now.
I really appreciate the offering and discount to veterans. I served in Vietnam like you and appreciate your remembrance, consideration and kindness to all veterans. Carry on… “No mission too difficult, no sacrifice too great… For those who fought for it, life has a flavor the protected will never know”… Thanks for serving this great country.
Brother in Arms,
I’m really happy with the quality of the jacket I ordered from your shop. I was in the USAF for 23 years, on the flight line. I know quality gear and this is it, right up there with the 1911 slabside and C-130 Herk. Will do business with you in the future.
Was on your site planning to replace the bomber jacket my wife bought me in 1986 as a graduation gift from my MBA program, and saw you served with the 1st Infantry at Lai Khe.
I served throughout 1967 with the 11th Combat Aviation Battalion at Phu Loi, and one of our aviation companies, the 173rd “Robin Hoods” was at Lai Khe. We flew a lot of missions supporting the 1st and 2nd of the 28th Infantry at Lai Khe, and the 1/16 at Phouc Vinh.
Thanks for the great merchandise, your support of the Viet Vets, and for trying to set the record straight – we were neither baby killers, victims, nor drug crazed draftees. Just a bunch of largely normal kids trying to live up to the expectations and legacy of the “Greatest Generation.”
Let me start by thanking you for your service to our great nation. I sincerely appreciate it… I am currently back in Korea as a contractor working on US Army helicopters. I am doing the same job I did during the last 6 of my 10 years of Army service, but now I am making the money to match the job. I am planning on ordering two B-3 jackets to protect my lovely wife and myself against the Korean winter…
Now to the “Hackmobile”: I was stationed at Ft Campbell in 9-101st Aviation and have seen your jeep with my own eyes. It’s amazing that 7 years later I am planning on buying B-3 bomber jackets from the man who drove it. I can tell you that during our tour (we went to the museum as part of “training” which was some of the best “training” I received while I was there) there were quite a few utterances of “what the f**k?”. I personally was looking for the keys.
I could not wait for my future order to arrive to read The Life of a Warrior, and had to download it. Brother, you had me laughing and crying the entire time. It’s just like your comment about missing the Army until you go to a military post. Friday morning at 0600 in the hangar as I was drinking coffee to attempt to wake up for work, here comes a company-sized formation running through during PT. I couldn’t help but let out a little laugh and a “better you than me.” It’s funny, but while I’m at work with the soldiers I don’t miss it while watching the things I went through (not to mention that I work with my old unit in Korea!!!) but as soon as I’m off work I wish I was back in uniform…
Your story is an inspiration Brother, and you’ve made me look at what I’ve done with my life since I got out of the Army.
Thank you again,
Got the A-2 jacket and it is just great!!!! The fit is perfect, you were right on brother!!! Thank you so much. Now I can put my Dad’s patches on it. When I get done, it’ll look just his old one.
I must say your leather jackets are of the highest quality! How refreshing to find an item made in the USA! KUDO’S!!!! I’m a retired CW4 of 40 years in the Army & National Guard with two tours in Vietnam as a Huey pilot. I’ve always wanted a top shelf leather flight jacket and I’m glad I found your website! I finished the book on Sgt. David D. Hack yesterday. If this story is true, and I have no reason to doubt it, it made me proud to be a Nam vet and a customer.

Ordering from you was easy, fast. Great web site, great pictures. Your stuff is first class, everything is five star. Thanks.
Dear Sir / Madame,
I received my goatskin G1 flight jacket yesterday. I am ecstatic. There is not a mar on the jacket and it fits perfectly. Thank you Sgt. Hack and all that are a part of your team that makes your customers happy. Your outfit was, is and will be highly recommended to all that ask.
Thank all Y’all!!
If you’re looking for a high quality, classically styled leather jacket, US Wings is the place to find it… and better yet, it’s made in the USA!! I looked in every store I could think of over the period of a couple of years trying to find just the right jacket. I finally gave up and did a search online. Fortunately, I found US Wings and now I have exactly the one I was looking for. The jacket is perfect and customer service was great too.
It’s also worth reading the booklet about Sgt. Hack’s life that comes with your order. He’s an interesting guy with a great story to tell.
Thank you to US Wings and Sgt. Hack for the great product and service!
My husband has a leather bomber-type jacket with a zipper that needed to be repaired. Just received the jacket back today. Thank you for a great job repairing zipper — and for the unexpected gift of the hat and book! You guys are great! I’ll be sure to spread the word.
God’s blessings always,
Just got my WASP A-2 Jacket in the mail and it fit like a glove. Aviator scarf looks great too. I will definitely be ordering again. I was looking at some of the winter gear with coyote fur hoods for men and the large women’s fit me perfectly. I may need some help in deciding on a mens jacket for winter, since I don’t see any women’s winter gear. I want something WARM. Chicago area gets COLD! Thanks again.
I just wanted to drop a note to say I was very impressed with the quality and respect that went into my online purchase with U.S. Wings. I do most of my shopping online and I have never seen such quality as I have experienced with you. Thanks again.
A thankful American
I got my AF 60th Anniversary Aloha Shirt today and was psyched! I wanted to thank you for the freebies that you threw in… a cap, shirt, and your book. That made buying the shirt an even easier sell to my lovely wife 🙂
I’m looking forward to reading the book. It looks like an interesting read about a true American warrior. God bless, and thanks again for the shirt and the freebies!
A couple weeks ago I received your A-2 2000 Jacket. I must tell you that I believe the jacket to be quite the value. The workmanship is outstanding, the jacket fits great and looks wonderful. I have been looking for an A-2 for several years and have never found a quality jacket at a price I was willing to pay. Thanks for providing a great jacket to me with outstanding delivery service.
Thank you for the great service. I am so enjoying my new jacket (B-3), especially here in Canada. I also congratulate you on your “much too brief” book. I wanted it to go on and on. Please consider writing longer version, I am sure it would be successful. I also had adversity and came back from it, so I was able to identify clearly with some of your experiences. Thank you again.
Just wanted you to know that I received the jacket today and it looks amazing!! I love it!! I also wanted to thank you for including the book on your life. I already begun to read it. Thanks again for supplying an excellent quality Indy jacket.
I got the shirt and you are right, I love it! it fits perfectly. Thank you for making/marketing such a desirable product. I also love the military sunglasses, when I lost mine that I had for over 30 years it was like losing an old friend. Then I found your web site and lo and behold, there are my sunglasses, so now I have two pair, in case I lose one.
Glad you made it back brother, and I am glad that you decided to start your business and thankful that you are successful.
Hello to All (especially Lisa),
I ordered a “Wings of Gold” bomber jacket in antique lambskin and it arrived today. The jacket is of superior quality and workmanship and I should know; I worked in the men’s garment industry for 25 years! I am very pleased and will recommend you to all of my friends and colleagues. Thanks especially to Lisa for excellent customer service skills since I was unsure of the proper size to order. She was very pleasant and extremely helpful.
Thank you very much for deducting the shipping cost and thank you even more for your support of the service men and women. I have recommended your company to several people at work and they have shown a lot of interest.

I received my item this evening and I thank you. It was item number Z2109 (Cockpit RAF Sheepskin), in a size 46 regular. It fits me just fine. I’m very happy with it. I also appreciate the “free” promotional cap which you sent. I have ordered MANY items from your company (and have sent them as gifts for friends and relatives). I also appreciate your products and your service. You do a GREAT job and that’s great!!! I will do my best to recommend your company to all my friends and co-workers.
Thank you for the great customer service. My order arrived today. The order was complete and all of the products were of excellent quality. Count on me for future business.
Wow, I just received the jacket and have been wearing it around the house and outside (took the trash out). This is even more comfortable than my recently destroyed (30 yr old) G-1, which I loved until now. The A2 cowhide is a great fit, and I cannot wait to transfer my “USN” patches to this “USAF” leather coat — it’s okay, I did spend one tour working for a USAF- 06. Now for the real mystery — how did a part of my local paper (Portland, Texas) get into the box? You guys are really amazing.

I received the two flying cap in Friday’s mail, they look great! They are a gift for a mate and his wife, their heads get a bit cold when they go for a Sunday drive and I think they will do the job nicely.
Sgt Hack, Family, and Staff:
I received my order yesterday and was pleased to find everything professionally packed and tucked away nicely.
What was more exciting was to find a bonus U.S. Wings hat, and the book, “The Life of A Warrior.” I skipped my usual after dinner work routine to take some time to read your book while watching my Padres beat the Cardinals. Your book is a great read, and reminded me that the greatest blessings in life often come from trials and tribulations. My wife and I are going through some challenging times financially and professionally this year, but I have a new fire in my belly after reading your book.
Thanks for all you are doing to inspire fellow soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, and the avg. American citizen well beyond your retirement.

Dear US Wings,
Atsutaka Morioka from Japan, three bags ordered just reached this morning 8/6 Japan time. What a quick delevery, it took only 5 days from US to the door in Japan. So, I took it out and felt proud of having the urban bag. It looks good and functional. Thank you again for your quick service.
Good afternoon Tina,
Just to confirm that my black goatskin jacket arrived yesterday at noon. Please accept my congratulations in the way you expedited the goods and a big thanks for the additional “GOODIES.” I was very impressed with the Sarge’s book which made my service in the Royal Air Force more or less a garden party! Once again many thanks… the only down side is, we tend to forget that we have to pay V.A.T. on goods brought in to the U.K.
Dear Ms. Major,
I have received my order today 7/30 and am very pleased with your service and quality of work. I can’t say enough thanks for all your support from your company and the support for the soldiers. A special thanks to SFC Hack for a copy of his book. Thank you again to all and I’ll make sure that a good word is passed on to my soldiers and others of your fine company.

I just purchased a long sleeve khaki shirt from you and I wanted to say that I’m really impressed. It’s hard to find a new, well stitched, tough shirt for a reasonable price these days. I will definitely be shopping at US Wings in the future.
I just wanted you to know that my dad received his hat yesterday and was totally thrilled! It was a perfect gift. Thanks so much for taking the time to write me a personal email and phone call to let me know where my order was… It was greatly appreciated!
I just wanted to say thank you for all of your help. I recently ordered last year’s Army kamp shirt from you folks. IT IS AWESOME!! I gets washed every time I do laundry!!
What got me the most was how everyone was so friendly with me. I just wanted to thank everyone there. Anytime I am looking for military gear, I will look on your site first. Thanks again!
I’m Parsim Sanaja from Kosovo. I was not in Vietnam but I know everything that happened there and I like this website very much. GOD BLESS AMERICA and you too Sarge. I hope I’m gonna be a USMC one day. Bye.
To whom it may concern,
Several years ago I purchased an Adventurer Kangaroo Leather Jacket and a B-3 Bomber Jacket. Both are holding up quite well. I am a broadcast radio engineer in Michigan and I needed some outer wear to protect me from the elements. I get called out at the most inopportune times in respect to the weather.
The B-3 has kept me warm in the winter. Even in 60 MPH winds with the temperature below 20 I don’t need much else on. And I have received many compliments on its looks from complete strangers.
The kangaroo jacket has kept me quite comfortable in the fall and spring, and my wife thinks I look quite rugged in it. I do have one problem with it though. The damn thing won’t wear out. After four years of heavy use I thought it might start to look a little beat up by now to give it that cool “lived in” look, but it still looks nearly new. I even asked my wife to drag it for a mile behind her jeep down a dirt road. She said she would be happy to do it, so long as I was wearing it at the time.
All kidding put aside I feel you sell some wonderful, high quality products. I have recommended your store to many of my friends, and I hope to make other purchases from you as the need arises.

I just finished your book, Life Of A Warrior, and I think it is fantastic. Thank you for sending it. I am inspired by it and I think you are one fine gentleman. If you are there, I would love to meet a fellow Nam vet in person. I hope to go to Charleston, West Virginia one day and tour a little bit of Ohio. My best friend in Nam was from Alliance, Ohio. I hope I can meet the man who is an inspiration to all the guys who went to Nam without question. Thanks again.

Wow, thanks for the quick and personal response from “the Boss” — that’s customer service. I wanted to tell you I appreciated getting the little book on your Army career with my order. I started out enlisting in the Army in 1975 and served as a tanker with many Vietnam veterans. Although I heard lots of their harrowing stories none compared with yours. Thanks for your service and for running a great business.
I received the jacket (B-3 w/hood) yesterday. I just want to extend my thanks for all the support, communication and all other assistance that you and US Wings provided. The jacket exceeded my expectations in all aspects, needless to say I am VERY satisfied with this jacket. The jacket is very beautiful. Once again THANKS!!!!!
SSG Jason J. H.
Gotta thank you for the story. Loads of men bought it during that time, I’m glad you made it out. I own one of your Horsehide Jackets. I had the big Eagle, Globe and Anchor sewn on the back, and recently, my granddaughter wanted my old USMC Wings and one of my Birds for her canvas purse. I just received the order for the Wings, because I found that my own, made of 10 Kt. Gold are missing out of my own cabinet.
I will need a replacement for them, and I ask you to keep it a secret from my granddaughter. LOL! She has decided she wants to be a USMC Pilot like granddaddy. Go figure.
I’ll send in the order tomorrow, and hope you are as fast as you were on this past order. Many thanks for the book.
Grunts and Pilots Forever,
Dear Mr. Hack,
I received my G-1 jacket this morning-it is outstanding! The best jacket, made from the most quality leather I have ever seen. Also, thank you very much for hanger, cap, polo shirt and, of course, the book – you really know how to run the business – it is very rare these days. The best wishes for you, your wife and all people at US Wings.
Thanks for a beautiful and rugged jacket (goatskin A-2) at a fair price. I wanted to also thank you for your book. The success you now enjoy has clearly been hard-won. Best of luck with your screenplay!
Edmund F. F.
I received my jacket (clearance vintage cow A-2) and it’s fantastic! Thank you very much for the US Wings cap as well. The quality is far greater than I expected.
Yesterday the order I placed with you arrived and your hat is adjustable as advertised. Also thank you for the U.S. Wings hat and book about Sgt. Hack, I plan to read it this weekend. I look forward to dealing with your company in the future.
Have a great weekend,
Dear US Wings,
I guess you don’t get many emails from my neck of the woods (Athens, GR) but it’s been some time now that I wanted to write to you and say that you have a satisfied customer over here. I own an A2-2000 of yours (a gift from a very good American friend) and I really love it. It’s durable, it’s stylish, it’s a garment for all seasons (OK, except the very heavy peak of the Greek summer); in short, it’s my favorite part of my wardrobe. Keep on making the good stuff!
Best from Greece,
Grigoris A. M.
Thanks very much for the U.S. Wings cap you sent with my last order. The t-shirts are great. You people do a great job. Always nice doing business with you.
Thank you for your service and for your company’s products!

I received my 2 jackets today, MA-1 and CWU-45/P; they both are very good. Thank you very much. My next thing is a few Vietnam t-shirts and an N3-B cold weather parka.
To US Wings,
I just received my order today in exchange for the one that I’ve returned last week and I absolutely love it. Thank you very much for the great service that you’re providing to your customers like me. I will definitely recommend your site and shop again.
Holy s**t, I have been reading the booklet that you sent me and you really were — and are — a true warrior in every sense of the word!!! I have some physical wounds, but nothing like yours and I have some mental wounds that I cannot deal with. Thanks for being there for those of us that are still trying to find our way. Who loves ya’…

Dear Sgt. Hack,
I just wanted to let you know that I received my jacket today in great shape. I inspected every inch of it 3 times and haven’t been able to find any reason that it would be a “FACTORY SECOND.” So, if it’s flawed, I can’t find it. Also, thank you for the hat… it looks great with the jacket. More importantly than all this, thank you for the news clippings and the copy of your book. When you first e-mailed me, I thought that I had heard/saw your name before, but I couldn’t place it. The I read the clippings/articles and remembered you from a trivia game (in reference to your company taking the first ever CC order online). However, it was not until I read your book that I fully remembered you.
I had 2 uncles in Vietnam… Uncle Mike was stationed in Danang and was a sheetmetal worker. He would patch up some of the Hueys that came in all shot up. My Uncle Tom was in the 101… My Great Uncle Milton Black was a 2nd class Machinist Mate stationed on the U.S.S. Cushing during WWII. My Uncle Robert Kies was a 2nd Class Boatswainsmate during the Korean war. My Dad was a 3rd class Engineman and served from ’58-’62, and served onboard both the U.S.S. Norton Sound stationed at Port Huinemem and YTB-73 stationed at Pearl Harbor. My brother was an E-3 Fireman onboard the U.S.S. Dwight D. Eisenhower in the late ’70’s early ’80’s during the Lebanon crisis. And, I myself was a E-3 Seaman first class onboard the U.S.S. Wabash during the first Persian Gulf war.
Well sir, when I read your book, all of the things I was told about you as a child came back to me. Things one here’s when they are growing up and forget in time. I remembered my Dad talking about your Red, White and Blue JEEP and my Uncle Mike talking about you being the BEST recruiter our nation has ever seen. In short, it brought up a lot of fond memories for me. Thank you so much for having the courage to write your story down. Thank you for the inspiration that you have given to countless numbers. Thank you for having the courage to take life by the horns and to NEVER give up. And, most of all, thank you for defending our country during a time of profound change and great unacceptance of the military, and for defending the freedoms that so many of our countrymen (and women) take for granted.
In closing, Sir… from the bottom of my heart… THANK YOU.
With fondness and Great Admiration,
P.S. Thanks, too, for the jacket and for making damn fine products.
On Friday I received and picked up my new N-2B Jacket from US Wings, just let me say I am ecstatic about this jacket. A long time ago I purchased a B-7 Aleutian Parka from your company when you made that item, and to this day it is one of my favorites to wear when I venture to family and friends in Northern Alaska. It is unfortunate that you don’t make that parka anymore.
Sometime early next month I will be ordering a hooded B-3 Item#: Z203615, so PLEASE don’t discontinue that one!! I sure don’t mind paying for the absolute premium quality that your company has…
I just received my A2 yesterday and the minute I put it on it became my favorite jacket. What a great look, fit and finish. Thanks for the fast shipping and free hat. I will be shopping again.
Just got my order (Adventurer Jacket). Faster than expected and a PERFECT fit. Thanks to Lisa for recommending I go up one size, it fits perfect and looks great. I’ll recommend you to any and all 🙂
Received your shipment Monday of the two Bomber Jackets that I ordered (Black A-2 2000 & Women’s Black A-2 2000). We are exceptionally pleased with the jackets — they are excellent and are perfect fits. Appreciate the prompt service too. We will definitely be ordering again from you. Thanks a lot.
Sgt & Lani:
I wish to thank you for the fine products which you have sold me in years past. I have purchased a B-3, A-2, and G-1 jacket from uswings.com. I am well pleased with the fine quality products you sell.
My most recent purchase is the USN G-1, which commemorates to me the service of my Uncle Donald E. Runyon, who was the top F4F Wildcat Ace of WWII. My uncle Don served proudly for the US Navy, also flying the Grumman F6F Hellcat during the war in the Pacific. His total kill number credit was 11, and he was awarded the Navy Cross.
I also wish to express my appreciation for your service as a Chief of Police. I myself am an honorably discharged Deputy Sheriff from the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office (Colorado).
I look forward to future business with uswings.

Liza of US Wings,
I just cannot allow a day to pass by without expressing how happy I am when I got the N3-B Extreme Jacket and the Navy Cup that you arrange for shipment to me. I am satisfied with the superb customer service and great effort you displayed. Please accept my thanks as a compliment for a job well done.
I just wanted to thank you and Lisa from your Telephone Ordering Call Center for the great customer service. She answered all my questions and was very pleasant to deal with over the phone.
Sgt. Hack and Company,
I’m always checking for American made leather jackets on the internet, luckily I found you and got a chance to have a holiday there last September 2006. We travelled West Coast down to Mexico and from East Coast NJ to Ohio US Wings. I drove non stop with my family. I’m proud to say that JUST TO PURCHASE A JACKET from you guys despite our busy schedule. From there we went to Canada and back to NJ . Now I’m back in Australia, excited to display my jacket this coming winter!
Looking forward to doing business with you again. I’m planning to get an Indy jacket next time. I’m one who patronized American products when it comes to quality! Keep up the good work guys and more power to you!
Your satisfied customer,
This morning (Sat.) @ 10 o’clock, I visited your store. I just wanted to drop a short line to tell you that I was very impressed with one of your employees. I think her name is Kate (blonde hair, camo pants). She was more than happy to help me find a coat. She was excellent in sizing me and did not hesitate to make numerous trips to bring more for me to look at and try on. I valued her opinion on what looked good on me. She was also quick on the changing fashions of wartime era. I will speak very highly of US Wings and Kate. Thank you for a very pleasant experience.
Dear U.S. Wings,
I am writing to express my complete satisfaction in regard to my original online order. I had a problem with the jacket that I originally received and contacted U.S. Wings promptly. I spoke to Kate informing her of my specific concerns and she attended to all of my needs expeditiously, which included sending out a replacement jacket on a specific date so that I would be able to accept delivery. Let me say that I could not be happier with the replacement B-3 – it far exceeds my expectations!
It has been a complete pleasure doing business with U.S. Wings and its staff. The customer service that I received was superior. Kate was absolutely wonderful to speak with and she could not have been more courteous and helpful. Everything was attended to exactly as she had explained in our conversation. I fully recommend U.S. Wings to anyone shopping for a high-quality leather garment. I am a return customer and it is comforting to know that a business where the customer truly comes first still exists!
I received my US Wings “Adventurer” goatskin jacket Tuesday and I absolutely love it. Job well done on this fine jacket. It will see me through many adventures. Thanks US Wings!
