A small number of test, if that. There's no need to do it in the military, the skill required to jump a wing suit would exclude almost all of the military jumpers, and it would be a logistical nightmare/ borderline deadly as far as rucks and weapons go.

Jumping in a wingsuit is very much like putting on a straightjacket to go for a skydive. Your range of motion in your arms is restricted to an angle of about 45 degrees until you get everything unclipped and unzipped.
