The theme for the air show is “A Salute to Vietnam Veterans” and features several performances and displays recognizing the sacrifices of Vietnam veterans.
The 2017 MCAS Miramar Air Show gives the public and current service members an opportunity to say thank you to the veterans of the Vietnam War,” said Col. Jason Woodworth, commanding officer of MCAS Miramar.
Our goal is to remind the veterans that the country cares about them and truly values the sacrifice they made for the American people, regardless of how they were treated when they initially returned from Vietnam.”
