Friday April 13, 2018, was the annual Month of the Military Child lunch event at GBMS with a special guest. Fat Albert C-130 pilot Major Mark Montgomery came to visit Gulf Breeze Middle School as the special guest. The event was hosted in the library and took place during each grade’s lunch period.

Major Montgomery is from Georgia and was commissioned by the USMC in 2002. He was deployed in Iraq twice and Afghanistan twice. He joined the Blue Angels in 2016. Major Montgomery said that flying Fat Albert, or the C-130, to carry equipment to other air shows nice, but it is not super-fast.

The lunch celebration included pizza, cupcakes, sodas, popsicles, and candy for all the visitors to enjoy. There were also prizes for everyone if they could get the correct answer on questions about the Blue Angels. Jasper Bragg, an 8th grade attendee at the lunch said, “The lunch is fun for a few reasons: the trivia is informational, the food is good, and the Blue Angel pilot is really cool.”

Juliana McCarthy, another 8th grade participant, stated, “It was an amazing experience. The food was delicious, and it felt good to be around other military kids who know what it is like to move around a lot. It was nice to know about what it is like to be with a Blue Angel pilot.”
