Lufkin Marine Makes Lufkin Flyover

A Lufkin marine traveling back to his home base made an appearance in the sky over East Texas Tuesday afternoon.

Marine Captain Jeremy Orr was in one of two helicopters that passed over Lufkin.

A lufkin native, Orr was heading back from a six week training exercise in California. Orr was granted a change in his flight plan so he could fly over the clinic in Lufkin where his mom and sister work to let them know he is doing well.

At nearby Trout Elementary School, students were hoping they would get to see Jeremy fly over. But school was out for the day before the helicopters arrived over Lufkin.
