San Diego, California - The Marine Corps Air Station Miramar recently held a special Evening Colors Ceremony in honor of the San Diego Chargers. Prior to the ceremony, the entire organization was invited to test their skills on flight simulators and tour aircrafts, including an F/A 18 Hornet, MV-22 Osprey, KC-130 Hercules and CH-53E Sea Stallion, and T-34C.
The highlight of the night was a ceremony honoring the Chargers’ commitment to the armed forces in front of 5,000 marines. President DEAN SPANOS and Head Coach MIKE MCCOY each spoke at the event.
“This is very special because these are men and women who do incredible things for our country,” Spanos said. “Everything we get to do today wouldn’t be possible without them. We can never do enough to thank them, and we all feel very fortunate to do whatever we can for them.”
