Coronado is a very patriotic community. Perhaps in part to the fact that it is home to the Naval Air Station North Island and the Naval Amphibious Base. Even if that is at its heart, the spirit spreads throughout the community, military and civilian alike.
This spirit is particularly evident as the Fourth of July approaches. American flags are displayed throughout the year, but additional ones begin to spot the landscape in the weeks preceding the holiday. Bunting appears on balconies, walls and over doorways. Uncle Sam dolls, pinwheels and more adorn houses, condos and apartments.
No matter how large or small our homes are, no matter what each of us does for a living, we are united in our celebration of Independence Day and show our support , belief and appreciation for our freedom in a very colorful way.
