As most people know my boyfriend is in the Navy. He recently finished flight school and received his wings. The week and weekend of his winging was amazing and very busy. I thought I would give a summary of what the week consisted of…either for myself to be able to look back and remember, or for others about to experience the same thing and wondering what they should expect.
Wednesday. My flight to Pensacola was disastrous and I barely made it to his soft patch winging which was on a Wednesday. The soft patch wings go on the flight suit, and this was a small, informal ceremony for each individual squadron. Each flight student chose an instructor to present him with his soft patch, and usually the instructor told funny stories about the student.
