SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - Members of the Georgia National Guard 165th Airlift Wing flew over hospitals around the state on Friday. It’s the latest way to thank frontline workers.
Airmen will flew over three locations in Savannah. The first was over Saint Joseph Candler on Abercorn Street at 11:50 a.m. From there, the planes headed to Candler Hospital on DeRenne Avenue and ended with a flyover at Memorial Hospital around noon.
Savannah was the last three stops of the flyover before the guard returned to base.
“Man you know, living in a military town, it’s not uncommon to see our planes flyover. But knowing that they took time out of their day to fly specifically over here for us, for health care workers, definitely makes it much more special, that much more unique and it’s definitely we’ll keep in our hearts and remember, not just today but in the future," said Timmy Freeman, Critical Care Manager at Candler Hospital.
