I have Klingon jump wings....
No, no seriously....
I have El Salvadoran, Honduran, Canadian....
The ones from Jordan were real fun they don't exactly go out the door in order, if someone stops or gets scared they just go around them.

Look guys, the regs state, and should be on your orders, tho that was the old days- You are allowed to only wear 1 (one) set at a time. And yes you can wear wings from now defunct countries if you have the orders for them. As for me, thanks to foreign tng rotations in the 70-80's I have some 25-27 sets of wings.

The problem with my foreign wings is that I never got orders for them. I have the jump log, the wings, and the certificate signed by some Canadian Colonel, but no orders. My old S-1 dropped the ball. So now I have no idea how to get the orders or if it's too late. It was a year and a half ago.

Can't you write a letter or place a phone call to the Canadian Forces Attache in Washington, he might be able to advise you since he works with the Pentagon on Canadian & American Defense issues:
Canadian Forces Public Affairs Attache
I'm just guessing, I don't know what the procedure is but this is a place where I would start if my CoC was unresponsive.

Thanks, I'll look into that.
He doesn't need to recontact any Canadians since he has their certificate claiming he did the jump.
There are no orders (in the standard sense) published for foreign jump wings. You need a memorandum, as we got in the 82d, signed stating that this awarded was presented to you and can be worn on the uniform, and entered into the OMPF (not ERB).
Foreign awards do not get listed on the ERB.
My memorandums were signed by the 82d G-1. Maybe you group S-1 can help you there.
AR 670-1 listed which foreign awards may be worn on the uniform.
This link shows what can be entered into your records. You might need an AKO account to access it.
You should be able to browse around there for any regulation references you may need.
Honduran....from the first Big Pine exercise in 1984.
Thai Royal Guard jump wings... Operation Cobra Gold '06.
****ing cool looking wings, those.

Still authorized to wear on class "A" uniform only. I wear my Korean Master Wings because they are Korean SF wings. My son is back in the sandbox on his 7th tour and when he gets back he will be assigned to US Army Special Forces Command as Deputy Command Chaplain.
i got my Canadian wings in 91 at CFB Edmonton with the PPCLI... great place to go drinking too *s*
German for me.
