On this Federal holiday we at the Long Beach Airport (LGB) honor those members of the United States Armed Forces who have died while serving their country. Our country.
A flight of four Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcons landed at LGB Friday. Captain Jason "Jaws" Curtis from Luke Air Force Base said he wants to shed light on the sacrifices that our soldiers, airmen, marines and sailors have made overseas. "Jaws" also wanted to say thank you because the pilots received a great welcome from some Long Beach fans.
The F-16s will fly over Anaheim Stadium on Monday afternoon.
