Foley, selected April 21st, will take command of the Blue Angels
during a change of command ceremony scheduled for Nov. 14 at the
completion of the 2004 show season.
The mission of the Blue Angels is to enhance Navy recruiting and
credibly represent Navy and Marine Corps aviation to the United
States and other countries as international ambassadors of
"The Blue Angels serve as role models and goodwill ambassadors
for the US Navy and Marine Corps. They represent the best of naval
aviation, and Cmdr. Foley will make a superb addition to the team,"
said Mayer. "Selecting the one person from the seven finalists to
lead the Blue Angels was a difficult decision because they were all
exemplary officers, skilled aviators, and proven leaders."
More than 15 million people attended Blue Angels air shows
during the 2003 show season. Since 1946, the team has performed for
more than 380 million people.
