What people have already said about Wingman World:
"I have only recently joined and I have already seen the benefits of the Wingman Distress Flare. I was able to ask other Wingmen and Wingettes about my new University I will be joining in September and not just the usual questions that you get from open days." (E.L University Student)
"I'm a surfer looking to fill my winters with a new sport and I’m planning on using the Wingman Distress Flare to get in touch with the Ski slope warriors to learn more about snowboarding." (Scott McClish London City Worker)
"Wingman World's Garden of Remembrance is an ideal site for the times when one cannot actually get to a friend, son, daughter’s, husband's grave to remember them and leave a token. So, here in our cyber world we never need to be far away to send a tribute to them, be it a rose or a few lines or even a conversation with another about them." Priscilla Dicketts loving Mother of the late Oliver Dicketts (31/05/79 – 02/09/06) Parachute Regiment
"As a world traveller I look forward to returning home from operations soon. So I can take advantage of the Wingman World Distress Flare. Being able to connect with new friends that I might not have ordinarily met is definitely something I look forward to and feel many others will embrace the Distress Flare concept." M.H.Harrison (A soldier currently serving overseas)
