    CPT William P. Yarborough, accidentally commented on the previous post.

    MG “Bill” Lee?

    Designed it? Jump wings were not “Designed”! They were created by the gods and given to the titans and warriors who had the biggest balls!

  4. Duane says:

    Had to think for a while to remember CPT Yarborough, I earned mine around 25 years ago and needed a twix moment.

  5. Jordan says:

    If you have wings, they better have been blood wings!

      Basic Wings haven’t been pinned that way for a while. I know that Marines who retire their “Lead Sleds” do it with great fanfare.

      I’ve been a round for a few late-night/photography-prohibited Senior/Master wing ceremonies…

    Yarborough also designed the paratrooper uniform of WWII fame, later to be resurrected by him as the first generation Nam jungle uniform.

    William Yarborough. AND he designed the M-1942 Paratrooper jumpsuit and Jumpboots. You can’t pull a fast one a Jumpmaster troop!

    Manufactured exclusively by Bailey Banks and Biddle (jeweler), who sadly, have gone out of business. Now I have no warranty on the wife’s engagement ring!
