About PYRO WINGS
On the bleak day news was delivered that Captain William “Pyro” Dubois was KIA while on a mission for Operation Inherent Resolve in the Middle East, a mother embraced her daughter, a grieving young widow, by saying, “I’m so sorry, but you married an angel”. When you lose a loved one, nothing makes sense, but this simple phrase did simplify such a shocking wave of grief.It takes an incredible soul to put on fatigues and leave their family for months on end, to go up against an enemy who knows no boundaries, to be the driver of a F-16 fighter jet at “20,000 feet and 500 knots pulling 9G’s”. It’s the life of a hero; it’s the life of our angel.We ride for every hero’s sacrifice. We ride for freedom. We ride for Pyro. Double Down My Friend.
