Very unique Custom Designed Juarez “Coin Silver” Glider pilot wing which Flight Officer Kenneth Drasher wore as he was finishing up training in Lubbock, TX for transfer to Europe where he likely would have been active in any of Dragoon, Market Garden, Repulse & Varsity Glider Ops. He was killed June 8th 1944 in a training crash, before his transfer. He had a very unique set of wings. These are NOT your standard Juarez Wing as these were taken to a Jeweler who ground the surface of what must have been a Juarez Pilot Wing to a smooth surface. The Jeweler then proceeded to carefully etch an excellent Outlined “G” on the shield.
