Beat me to the punch, Pierre :) Attached is a proposed ufw.service for review.

Actually, this does NOT work. Here is a clean startup:

ufw.service - CLI Netfilter Manager
Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/ufw.service; enabled)
Active: inactive (dead)

Ok, a couple of adjustments were necessary. See the attached service file.

First "DefaultDependencies" must be set to "no" (I assume that's what was implied by "make your fw services an early-boot service"). Otherwise the service does not start as stated by John.
Since we launch in a very basic environment, we must make sure that all the components of UFW are available. Hence "ConditionPathExists=|/etc/ufw/ufw.conf" and "ConditionDirectoryNotEmpty=|/usr/lib/ufw". I'm not sure but I think it would be overkill to check for iptables executables and what not.
Finally, "After=systemd-sysctl.service" was added because UFW changes some kernel parameters and it would be bad if they were overwritten by sysctl.

With this treatment, UFW starts and works as expected.

Amended service file seems to work for me.
