    I was told that these wings are Air Force pilot's wings from the Vietnam War era. Since I know a pilot from that time and he verifies this I assume it to be true. Still it would be nice if others would take a look. I would appreciate any information I can get. Thanks for looking.

      They are Army Air Corps crew member wings (enlisted folks). The style is from WW2.

      jason is correct-- the style is the same as WW2 version.

      I should have looked at the back more closely.

      No problem, scottvez. I really appreciate your time and comments. I can't really see much of anything on it! :)
