(MILLINGTON, Tenn.) — During the 2023 Super Bowl National Anthem performance, three Navy tactical squadrons will conduct a unified flyover. Petty Officer 2nd Class Jedd Tabladillo, a native of Chicago is one of the sailors maintaining the aircraft for Electronic Attack Squadron 129.
The flyover formation includes two F/A-18F Super Hornets from “Flying Eagles” of Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 122, a F-35C Lightning II from the “Warhawks” of (VFA) 97, and a EA-18G Growler from “Vikings” Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ) 129.
Growing up in Chicago, Tabladillo attended Streamwood High School and graduated in 2015.
Skills and values similar to those found in Chicago are important to succeed in the military.
“Being a part of a team sport, like football, taught me the importance of team work, discipline and selflessness,” said Tabladillo. “It has helped me throughout my Navy career.”
