NAVAL AIR FACILITY EL CENTRO — U.S. Navy Capt. Tom Frosch describes the Imperial Valley as a "home away from home." That's because as commanding officer and flight leader for the U.S. Navy's Blue Angels, a famed flight demonstration squadron, this is where it all begins.

"El Centro is probably the most important part of the whole year because it's where we come together as a team and set the foundation here. This is where we build our team and get ourselves ready for the show season," Frosch said.
