SAN ANGELO, Texas --
The United States Air Force Thunderbirds did more during their visit to San Angelo than their aerial acrobatics during Air Fiesta '08.
The air demonstration team visited patients and staff at both Shannon Medical Center and Community Medical Center, spoke to students at Central and Lake View High Schools and conducted both a re-enlistment ceremony and a Delayed Entry Program enlistment ceremony.
Additionally, two members of the local media, KLST's Kristin Clark and West Texas Broadcasting's John Kerr, braved the high-g-force environment of the Thunderbird cockpits to better cover the show.
Finally, the Thunderbirds opened their practice show to the children and families of the Make-a-Wish Foundation March 14, bringing joy to the hearts of ill children.
