We think the data shared by amazon.com is interesting, but we already knew how patriotic our home city is, as a home to several military bases with a large population of military and civilian support personnel. Each year, Virginia Beach hosts “The Patriotic Festival—A Military Celebration to honor our armed forces personnel and their families.” It includes military display & demos and a three day Oceanfront Air Show featuring jaw dropping performance from the very talented The Red Bull Air Force Sky Divers. So we knew that the feeling of patriotism for City of Virginia Beach is not limited to ordering flags on Amazon.com – but we’re happy to have that distinction too!
