Blue Angels Set to Dazzle Fort Worth Skies, White Settlement PD Honors Event with Commemorative BadgesSource: White Settlement Police Department

The sky above NAS JRB Fort Worth will thunder with the sounds of precision when the U.S. Navy Blue Angels soar into town for the Wings Over Cowtown Air Show. Anticipation is high for the aerial spectacle, which marks a significant return for the event that showcases the prowess of the Navy's elite demonstration squadron. In the lead-up, the White Settlement Police Department is gearing up for the event in a special way—by donning commemorative badges and coins.

These tokens of honor are not mere trinkets but symbols of the deep respect the WSPD holds for the U.S. Navy and the Blue Angels; they are a salute in metal and enamel that every officer will wear proudly during the upcoming air show weekend. "Our team commissioned a commemorative badge and coin to highlight this remarkable event!" White Settlement Police Department stated. They have been collaborating closely with local, state, federal, and military partners for over a year to ensure a seamless and unforgettable experience for all in attendance.

Retired CDR Jon Fay of the Blue Angels, a Brewer High School graduate alongside his brother Ben, gave a nod to his roots by providing the WSPD team with both photographs and swag—a testament to the personal connections that underpin such military demonstrations of skill and spirit. Enthusiasts and families mark their calendars, for this weekend will not just be about stunts and speeds; it's an intersection of community and service, recognition and pageantry—tailored for those on the ground as much as for those in the air.
