SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) – The U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels in town for the Defenders of Liberty Air Show visited some special patients Friday morning.
The Navy’s premier aerial demonstration teams is headlining the airshow at Barksdale Air Force Base May 6-7, but took the time to stop by the children’s hospital at University Health Hospital in Shreveport young patients there. The kids were excited to get the visitors and the Blue Angels say they always hope to leave a lasting impact on those who may not be able to make it out to the air show this weekend.
“There’s nothing better than be able to look into a little boy or a little girl’s face and make their day that much better. It’s that astounding,” said Petty Officer First Class Richard Sweeney, with the U.S. Navy.
The Blue Angels gave out special coins to the kids they visited.
