Question on Army Aviator Wings eligibility
« on: March 25, 2015, 06:42:36 AM »
Hey gang --

I recently acquired records for a Signal Corps Officer.  In February 1958 he was assigned duty as Helicopter Pilot, MOS# 1066 which changed to MOS# 1986 in March.  1986 is Air Observation Pilot.  In June he's reassigned again as 0501, Radio Officer.

My question -- does this man get wings?

Rob,

I would think that he did get his basic wings..

I have no clue....but I believe Smitty is correct.
I throw this lack of knowledge opinion in, as a hope others more knowledgeable members might join the thread.
