This article (in link above) focuses on the strong military heritage present in the area as well as the ties within the community. My image, of a pilot having his wings pinned on by his daughter, represents the presence of both Naval aviation and military families in the community. Pensacola is an area rich in Naval history and is stated to have a relationship with its military that is among the best in the country.
Pensacola became the site of the Navy’s first air base and later came to be fondly known as "The Cradle of Aviation". Naval Aeronautic Center Pensacola was built in 1914 and ultimately renamed Naval Air Station Pensacola before World War II. NAS Pensacola is also home to the US Navy Blue Angels Flight Demonstration Squadron.
I have had the honor to serve on board NAS Pensacola from 2015-2017 with the Blue Angels and at the Naval Education and Training Command (NETC), and can attest that it is a fine place to be a Sailor.
