Memorial Day Weekend 2012

To many,  Memorial Day means a long weekend, BBQs, beer, and spending time with family and friends.  I appreciate those things too but first and foremost, I appreciate our servicemen and women that sacrifice to uphold and protect our freedom.  I am in awe of them and all they do to manifest the spirit of our country and exemplify patriotism at its best.

The Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach offered various military tactical demonstrations and civilian performances including:

  • U.S. Army golden Knights Parachute Team
  • United States Air Force F-22A Raptor
  • F-18 Super Hornet
  • 106th Rescue Wing, NY Air National Guard HC-130/HH-60 Rescue Demo
  • Sean D. Tucker and Team Oracle
  • John Klatt
  • Matt Chapman
  • Ed Hamill
  • GEICO Skytypers
  • B-17 Yankee Lady
  • David Windmiller
  • Canadian Forces Snow Birds
  • U.S. Navy Blue Angels
The show is presented every Memorial Day Weekend, on Saturday and Sunday.  The soundtrack is awesome and made me feel like running home and watching Top Gun!
