The Navy Blue Angels and the Air Force Thunderbirds will conduct a series of flyovers across the nation to honor healthcare workers combating COVID-19, President Trump announced on April 22.
Trump said the flyovers are part of a mission dubbed Operation America Strong and was the brainchild of service members. Operation America Strong was the idea of our great military men and women-the Thunderbirds and the Blue Angels crews who wanted to show support to the American medical workers who, just like military members in a time of war, are fiercely running toward the fight.
The DOD was devising a plan for the flyovers before Trump publicly shared the development. The flyovers are scheduled over the course of the next several weeks.
Fighting with the enemy.
A planned military task.
Operation Inherent Resolve is the U.S. military's operational name for the military intervention against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.
