Current GOAL

Please drop this item in rural OR Premium Member Only caches.  Do not place it in an urban cache or abandon it at a caching event.  Transport the bug in the original plastic bag for as long as the bag lasts; the bag keeps the trackable clean, protects the number and prevents tangling with other items.  Otherwise, take the travel bug anywhere you wish.  No permission is needed to leave the U.S.

Travel bug photos are appreciated and will be re-posted here.

About This Item

This pendant represents the National World War II Glider Pilots Association. It operates out of the Silent Wings Museum in Lubbock Texas.  Over 6000 individuals were trained as glider pilots and earned their wings with MOS 1026. Approximately 150 dues paying glider pilots and Troop Carrier Veterans still participate in the activities although their numbers are declining with ages in the 89 to 96 year group. The glider pilots remain proud of their silver wings with the large letter “G” which they note really stands for GUTS. It took guts to fly the glider beyond enemy lines on a one-way mission.

If you’re willing to wait until June, I can get this to Saint Mere Eglise for DDay 🙂 I’ll make sure it gets into an appropriate cache.
