While this Fourth of July may feel different than those of the past, a military flyover will be planned in Boston to celebrate cities that were involved in the American Revolution.
An official press release from the Department of Defense was released last week stating that aerial flyover celebrations will salute the “Great Cities of the American Revolution.”
Flyovers will start in Boston, then will head to New York City, Philadelphia, and Baltimore, respectively. Approximately 1700 service members will take part in the celebrations. Once in Baltimore, they will join other aircraft to salute over Washington D.C.
“The DOD is proud to help celebrate the nation’s 244th birthday. We are grateful for our nation’s support as we defend our country, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year,” the press release stated.
