Carsyn Gets Awesome Surprise From The Thunderbirds

The United States Air Force Thunderbirds are just the gift that keeps on giving! They were awesome in the Owensboro Air Show, showed great respect by dedicating their show to two fallen Tri-State soldiers and were more than welcoming to Chad when he had the pleasure of a flight ride-along with them in an F-16 and this last little thing is just the icing on the cake!

Carsyn's 1st grade class has a writing journal that they randomly write entries in throughout each month. I noticed when her August journal came home, her last entry was a picture of the Thunderbirds. Naturally, I thought it was precious, ha! I sent it to our public relations contact for them, as one last "Thank You" for them being here in town. Well, she thought it was precious too and said she wanted to send something special for Carsyn. I never expected this...

Thunderbirds Dedicate Owensboro Air Show Performance To Fallen Tri-State Soldiers

I knew that I would really enjoy the time I was going to get to spend around the United States Air Force Thunderbirds, but I underestimated how impressive they would be. Sure, the jets and show are awesome, but it was their general demeanor toward our town that was so memorable.

Chad and I were able to spend time with them before his flight Thursday and I was overwhelmed by how polite, humbling, generous and gracious they were with everyone they interacted with.

But, it was what I saw circulating on Facebook this evening that brought tears to my eyes.
