WASHINGTON, D.C. (KVEO NEWS CENTER 23) — A U.S. military official is stating that all of the Blue Angels performances for the rest of 2013 have been canceled due to sequestration.
The team will continue to train at their home station in Florida and stated, "Recognizing budget realities, current Defense policy states that outreach events can only be supported with local assets at no cost to the government. This is one of many steps the Navy is taking to ensure resources are in place to support forces operating forward now and those training to relieve them."
