“I’m thoroughly enjoying myself to be able to get out into the world and see everybody having such a good time,” said retired Marine Kathy Tuhy.
“Sometimes they fly by so low that you can see inside the cockpit,” said Army Veteran Lawrenzo Riley.
“I love being here with my fellow veterans,” said Navy veteran Mike Steel.
Brody Butler made sure to bring his camera to capture his experience.
“I think the show is really awesome,” said San Francisco resident Brody Butler. “The Blue Angels are my favorite types of planes.

“Any school supplies, materials we’re taking those donations today,” said Leroy Bermudez of the Niner Empire chapter.
“To bring people together for, you know, the veterans and everything means the world to me,” said Joe Leonor of Niner Empire.
“The cause is of great importance to be able to give back to the community and to be able to give back to vets,” said Monica Leonor of Niner Empire.
