    Had my originals on a hat. Went to a strip club in Vegas 10 years or so after I got out. They made me check my hat. Drank too much, forgot the hat until I was on a plane home.

    Mine are in a frame with my Jump school certificate that my Mother thought would be a nice present for me. I now have to keep it in the safe because they put my SSN on it back then (Aug 67)

    Mine are still pinned to my class A's. Earned them in June '84.

    My wife has mine. I took the pair off my Class A's hanging in the closet a few years back and made them my son's Blood Wings. I actually managed to sneak it past the eagle-eyed CSM who was stink-eyeing me as I pinned him, too. But I wanted to make sure my kid was done right in spite of the new "sensitivities."
