Independence Day

One of my favorite Independence Day memories was being stationed at MCAS El Toro back in the 90's and being at the local movie theater which was half filled with Marines watching Independence Day on opening night when the General tell's Wil Smith, "El Toro has been completely destroyed." and the entire theater breaks out in cheers.  He flew with VMFA-314.

Timezones away on the same day (1996) CAA watched Independence Day at the post theater in Mannheim, Germany.

When the aliens destroyed the White House, everyone cheered.

IIRC, Bill Clinton was president then.
