A.F. Spousta –
SFC David Hack,
WOW!! My 1960s USN/WEP flight jacket has been reincarnated. My original issue “lived its life” but before my wife got rid of it (unknown to me) she cut off and saved all my patches from my naval aviation career. I too did tours in Viet Nam. Now we have a new jacket — exactly like my old one — to add all of my saved patches as well as a “fresh” gold bullion embroidered name patch with Navy wings that Saunders Industries is completing for me.
I salute you for your perseverance and your accomplishments as evidenced in your enclosed booklet when I received my flight jacket — “The Life of A Warrior, Welcome Home.” Both my wife and I enjoyed the read — thanks for sharing your life with others.
And now to Lady Lani and Sir David, our very best to you for continued success in “serving those who have served.”
With best regards,
Retired Naval Aviator
