Honor The 148th Fighter Wing And Say Thank You For Your Service This Saturday
The Beacon Sports Bar and Grill will be holding a unique party to honor and say thank you to the 148th Fighter Wing for their service to our country. Everyone is invited to mingle, talk, and appreciate the sacrifices that they, their spouses, and their families make on our behalf. There will be specials throughout the night, and Military folks are encouraged to bring their I.D. and save $1 a beer.
The Beacon Sports Bar and Grill is located at 5044 Hermantown Road in Hermantown. There will be live music by August Ends. This is just a fun way to honor the people of the 148th Fighter Wing.
According to minnesotanationalguard.org the 148th Fighter Wing was the ninth-largest employer in Duluth, employing more than 1,000 Airmen. Operating the most advanced F-16s in the U.S. inventory, the unit is one of only two National Guard wings flying the aircraft and conducting SEAD missions. In 2015 the 148th Fighter Wing had a total of 37 Airmen deployed overseas to support Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Freedom Sentinel and security missions with the U.S. Pacific Command.
These people and their families make sure we are safe and have our backs while sacrificing family time. If you can make it please attend.
