Marines Captain Katie Higgins, the first female member of the Blue Angels visited CAF SoCal today for a presentation to an enthusiastic  group of Girl Scouts.


Captain Higgins’ inspirational speech covered most aspects of her duties with the Blue Angels as well as fielding difficult questions ranging from what got her interested in a Navy career, what it takes to be successful at such a demanding level of performance, how large is the C130 aircraft she flies, and yes, of course, what is her favorite color! (surprisingly the answer was not Navy blue!)

It’s safe to say more than a few of the young ladies in the audience were inspired to follow in her footsteps.

CAF SoCal salutes Captain Higgins, the Blue Angels and all of our service personnel for their outstanding service to our country and going above and beyond in inspiring the next generation of Americans – a goal we humbly share.

Thanks for visiting CAF SoCal.
