Northwest Florida’s United Service Organization is preparing for its annual Thanksgiving feast at its facility aboard NAS Pensacola.

Director Heidi Blair says the celebration will kick off Thanksgiving Day with a traditional holiday meal at the USO center aboard NAS Pensacola.

The holiday events are the latest chapters in the long history of the USO, which has 160 locations in 27 states and 14 countries. Its history dates back to the start of World War II, when it was created by President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

The Blue Angels will be in the sky at NAS Pensacola this weekend.  Saturday afternoon the Blue Angels will perform a flyover marking the official end of the 2013 season.  Lt. Katie Kelly, the public affairs officer for the Blue Angels says that the public is welcome to watch the maneuver from the parking lot of the museum, but there will be no seating provided.

Two people were injured this Monday morning in an air training crash on one of the runways at Sherman Field aboard Pensacola Naval Air Station.   The crash, involving a Navy T-45, occurred around 10:30 during a routine training flight. The two crew members onboard were taken to a local hospital for treatment.
