This weekend, the staff and management of our La Jolla self storage facility attended the 2010 MCAS Miramar Air Show along with hundreds of thousands of excited spectators. Storage West also had a booth set up to let our valued service members know that we offer regular military discounts and generous deployment specials. To find out more about these discounts, give our friendly store managers a call at 858-452-1047. They’d be happy to talk to you! View our other storage locations around San Diego.
There were many different impressive demonstrations during the three day show, but the highlight of the event was definitely the amazing show put on by the U.S. Navy Blue Angels. This part of the air show had a special significance to one of our employees. Earl Derschan is an associate manager for two of our storage facilities and sent us this note after the show:
My family attended the Air Show last weekend at Miramar. My son-in-law is U.S. Marine Pilot Mgr. Chris “Kitty” Collins. Blue Angel slot plane #4. Chris was born to fly and got his flying license at the age of 15. He will complete his two years in the Blue Angels in November. He must take one year off from flying and will be stationed at Camp Pendleton and then will return to be a Marine Top Gun assigned for a third tour in Iraq, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. These are very special men and stand in harms way for all of us every day.
I thought I might share this with you. What a show it was indeed. We are very proud of Chris and his partners.
