I am a United States Navy flyer.
My countrymen built the best airplane in the world and entrusted it to me. They trained me to fly it. I will use it to the absolute limit of my power.
With my fellow pilots, air crews, and deck crews, my plane and I will do anything necessary to carry out our tremendous responsibilities. I will always remember we are part of an unbeatable combat team - the United States Navy.
When the going is fast and rough, I will not falter. I will be uncompromising in every blow I strike. I will be humble in victory.
I am a United States Navy flyer. I have dedicated myself to my country, with its many millions of all races, colors, and creeds. They and their way of life are worthy of my greatest protective effort.
I ask the help of God in making that effort great enough.
While on vacation we visited Pensacola, Florida to see the Pensacola Naval Air Station and watch the Blue Angels practice. It was an incredible Museum and having a front row seat to the Blue Angels was amazing. These guys have a great mix of skill and insanity. I recommend it for anyone who can go.
These are some of the pictures from our visit.
This statue has the the Creed on it's base
These two boys are almost six foot tall giving you an idea of just how big this flag is
It is hard to appreciate just how close these guys are unless you are there watching it
This statue was cool in that it showed Naval Aviators through the years. From memory I believe it was, from left to right: WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, the first Gulf War
Have a Happy a safe 4th of July
