  • Summer Sale: Olive Air to Ground Jacket

    The Cockpit USA summer sale is officially in full swing! With offerings of smart and casual shirts, plaid button downs and easy breezy jackets, now is the time to bag yourself a bargain! Last week we featured the wardrobe must have Air to Ground jacket in black. However, while noir may be suitable for all and every occasion, sometimes it's fun to mix it up a bit with an injection of color! Fear not, we're not advising you to start wearing yellows or purples! We mean color, Cockpit USA style. Staying true to the military inspired palette we are known for, the light weight Air to Ground jacket is also available in olive! Put some green into your closet scene, and at 50% off the regular price? It would be silly not to!

  • Movie Monday: Guadalcanal Diary

    Based on the eyewitness accounts of Richard Tregaskis as recorded in his book of the same name, Guadalcanal Diary is a WWII movie which depicts the experiences of United States Marines  during the events of the Battle of Guadalcanal. Fresh in the wake of the battle which took place only a year prior to the release of the movie, Guadalcanal Diary places the lens directly on the marines themselves and their individual stories as told by an off screen war correspondent. Starring  Preston Foster, Lloyd Nolan, William Bendix, Richard Conte and Anthony Quinn, this 1943 action film goes through the motions, from the corps preparing for battle to the landing and initial campaign. Considering the dire times in which it was made and the proximity in time to the actual events itself, this film is an inspirational example of WWII Hollywood. Cockpit USA approved.


  • On This Day: 17th August 1943

    It was on this pivotal day in 1943 that the very first Quebec Conference was held. Codenamed 'Quadrant', the meeting brought together the British, Canadian and United States governments for top secret military discussions and decisions about WWII. Held in Quebec City at the Citadelle and Château Frontenac, the conference began on August 17 and came to a close a week later on August 24. With Winston Churchill, Franklin D. Roosevelt and William Lyon Mackenzie King in attendance, the three allies discussed the invasion of France, upping the bombing offensive against Germany and the removal of Italy from the alliance of Axis Powers followed by a subsequent occupation amongst many other points which were to change the course of the war drastically. In addition, Churchill and Roosevelt also put their minds together and secretly signed the Quebec Agreement to share nuclear technology and knowledge making this a particularly historic day never to be forgotten.
