My World War I fighter pilot buddies and I …
In the military, “I’ve got your six” means “I’ve got your back.” The saying originated when World War I fighter pilots would reference a pilot’s rear side as the six o’clock position – your blind spot. I’m covering your blind spot. When I bring it up now, it’s to emphasize the way we share. Women say: “sharing is caring” (add a heart after that). Well, we guys are a little more manly than that, expressing precisely the same thing using the fighter pilot lingo: “I’ve got your six, man!” – meaning “I’ll let you know about anything you might miss.”
If I personally discover something awesome, I tell my buddies. My guess is that since you are reading this, you actually think these items are something special. As you probably know by now, we need to raise plenty of funds to make this jewelry a reality. So … why not tell your friends? Yes, you will be helping me out, but you will also increase your chances of actually getting the jewelry you want, if you sign up as a backer on may 1st.
