And I had such a great time,” Drake said. “I knew that I needed to bring the next generation. My. My son, my son in law, my grandsons. And we’re just having a great time up here because this is helps the kids understand a little bit of what America is all about.”

We’re so grateful for the way that they’re flying and protecting us and putting in the work day by day,” Drake said. “They’re here flying for us, turning on the afterburners, flashing back and forth.
