SFC David Hack, a Vietnam Veteran founded US Wings in 1986 and has often remarked that is because of the US Army that he was able to be successful in many endeavors after he retired.  “Education, training and dedication are the foundation of the many skills I learned as a member of the US Army” said SFC David Hack.
