Honored to meet the Blue Angels team at USNA

What an exhilarating day! Joe was at the United States Naval Academy today to promote his illustration when the pilots of the Blue Angels showed up for a media interview. We were thrilled when THEY offered to kindly sign his print. Annapolis is ready and excited to watch the Blue Angels return in full formation above our city to honor the USNA graduates. Practice commences tomorrow, then the actual show is on Wednesday.
