U.S. Wings® is added to OTEXA’s Made in U.S.A. Database
During WWII, the A-2 jacket was primarily associated with US Army Air Force pilots & aircrews (the Air Force was part of the US Army until 1947), but the A-2 was also worn by non-aviation US Army personnel including officers serving in the 82nd Airborne and the 101st Airborne; even Gen. Douglas MacArthur was known to wear an A-2 jacket. But whether they were the pilot of a B-17 with 25 missions under their belt, a P-51 Mustang fighter ace, or a member of an elite parachute infantry regiment, those who were authorized to wear the A-2 wore it like a badge of honor.
For the first time in more than seven decades, the A-2 “Bomber” Jacket will make its triumphant return to active duty to the US Army and will become an officially issued jacket once again! For authorized personnel, the A-2 will be an option to go along with the Army’s new WWII-styled service uniforms.
US Wings, who is already an official supplier to the US Military, will also be one of the suppliers of this jacket to the US Army!
A portion of the proceeds from the NCOA® US Wings® Army A-2 jacket goes to the NCOA.
