The USAF Band of the Golden West delivers an awe-inspiring performance

The USAF Band of the Golden West free community concert on May 22 truly embodied the spirit of unity and pride as it honored the veterans from each branch of the US armed forces.

This remarkable evening would not have been possible without the generous support of the Lyon Air Museum and Commercial Bank of California, who sponsored the concert in tribute to the esteemed local legend, General William "Bill" Lyon.

The USAF Band of the Golden West concert was an extraordinary experience that celebrated the power of music, the sacrifice of our veterans, and the indomitable spirit of our community.

The reception following the concert served as a heartwarming reunion, bringing together not only the members of the Lyon family but also the dedicated employees who have been part of General Lyon's various business enterprises over the years. Close family friends joined in, cherishing the memories and celebrating the enduring impact of General Lyon's life and achievements.
