Your San Antonio Chamber of Commerce was honored to be invited to the Joint Base San Antonio Air Show Appreciation Reception at the Headquarters, 502d Air Base Wing Pavilion on Fort Sam Houston. Brig Gen Heather Pringle and her staff, along with mission partners and planners of the 2017 JBSA Air Show and Open House, gathered to celebrate the success of this spectacular display of air talent. They also extended a warm thank you to the volunteers, civilians, and service members who put in months of preparation and hours of work to ensure it was a premier event for our community and city.
Last November’s Air Show, held at Kelly Field at Port San Antonio, was a key event of the Chamber’s Celebrate America’s Military events and was host to thousands of visitors throughout the weekend. The Thunderbirds joined several Civilian acts, and many static displays of Army, Navy, and Air Force resources to reveal the breadth of assets that we hold here in San Antonio in relation to our Military neighbors. The Chamber was excited to connect businesses to the efforts of JBSA to confirm sponsorships and donations, as well as to coordinate the Thunderbird and Distinguished Visitor tent for guests and visitors to enjoy the Air Show up close and personal. It is a privilege to work so closely with our partners within JBSA and to highlight the vast talent that the Military services has to offer our great city. We look forward to many other opportunities in 2018 to carry on that mission!
