Today I earned mine.
Students greet newly complete students on the flight line with a bucket of ice water and champagne while the instructor awards the soft wings.
My lovely wife was able to join me today.

Soft wings are only worn on the flight suit and jackets. The formal winging ceremony will be next week, Friday, 19 December, and only after that ceremony will I rate to wear the famous wings of gold on other uniforms.
ThanksMy wife deserves a ton of thanks for all the support she has given me over the last two years, even before we married, while I've been working towards this milestone. So, "Thank you, honey!"
I also want to thank my friends and family who have expressed their support over the years and have been lifting me and my wife up in prayer. God has richly blessed us, and we are both grateful!
