(1) PILOTS FLY OVER Buckeye Stadium in photo above in the early portion of the air show on Thursday evening, July 3, as they fly mock aerial combat manuevers. The 8:30 p.m. aerial program, jointly presented by Brookshire’s and the local Flight of the Phoenix Museum, featured “Team FENIX.” It honored one of America’s most highly honored Navy SEALs, Chief Petty Officer Billy Machen of Gilmer, the first SEAL killed in action in the Vietnam War.

(2) FOLLOWING the air show, Dr. Phil and Road Kill Hill Productions presented a musical tribute to “The Greatest Generation”—World War II veterans and the recent 70th anniversary of D-Day. A fireworks display, sponsored by the East Texas Yamboree Association, concluded the program.

(3) GRAND MARSHAL Frank Breazeale leads the patriotic parade through downtown Friday morning in Ore City at its annual Fourth of July Fun Festival. He is riding in a 1976 MG restored by Bill Taylor. Behind the MG is Raven Headrick, 2014 Miss Ore City. Pre-Teen Miss Ore City Deirdre Jo McCullough and Petite Miss Ore City Laney Mills were also in the parade.
