Most folks who come to visit Colorado Springs have some association with the military.
That's just how it is, and that's terrific. The military by far is the biggest supporter of the local economy.
This is a video I made of the Thunderbirds performing at the May 2014 graduation ceremonies of at the Air Force Academy. It will give you a little taste of what to expect if you are coming to visit for a graduation. It also is useful if you just want an idea of what the area near the Academy looks like.
Vice President Joe Biden was in attendance in 2014. Over the years, many Presidents have paid a visit.
If you are visiting, enjoy your time here!
