“Our Soldiers and Airmen are proud to serve alongside those on the frontlines keeping everyone safe during these challenging times,” Maj. Gen. Timothy Gowen, adjutant general of Maryland, wrote in a news release. “This day is a small way to show our appreciation to everyone that is doing their part to combat the coronavirus. And to everyone who has been impacted by this pandemic, please know we are in this together and we stand with you.”

Last week, the Navy’s Blue Angels and Air Force’s Thunderbirds flew over Baltimore and the Washington, D.C., area to honor first responders and health care workers.
