In a prepared statement, U.S. Air Force Col. Micah Fesler, commander, 140th Wing, said the following:

“We are honored to fly over our local Veterans Day events and are humbled by the support and appreciation our communities provide to veterans and their military service. … We’re all standing on the shoulders of giants, the freedoms we have today are a gift from the generations of brave men and women who fought for our nation before us and those who continue to serve today.”
