NAVAL AIR STATION WHIDBEY ISLAND, Wash. — First lady Jill Biden arrived at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island late Tuesday morning, part of her tour of military bases to meet with service families.
She got a close look at a U.S. Navy EA-18G “Growler” electronic warfare attack warcraft, talking with naval personnel. The jet tail was painted red with the insignia of the “Scorpions” squadron.
Among those on hand to greet the first lady was Capt. Matthew Arny, commanding officer of the base.
Biden arrived in Washington Monday and visited Joint Base Lewis-McChord.
On Wednesday, Biden will visit Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center in Twentynine Palms, California.
The visits are part of Biden’s push to hear about the challenges military families face and the support they need.
