Sorry if this was in the wrong topic, but it does go with the Military style :)

Yesterday, David E. Koss was inagurated into the USNFDS (Blue Angels), as 2011-2013 Boss (lead).

For some of you who don't know, this is Greg Mcwherter's last year with the Blue Angels, each Blue Angel serves a 3 year term.
