Organizers of the 2019 GI Film Festival San Diego invite San Diego families to fly “higher, further, and faster” at their annual Family Movie Night featuring "Captain Marvel."
Attendees will have a chance to meet U.S. Air Force Brigadier General Jeannie Leavitt, who was the first female fighter pilot in 1993 and was the first woman to command a USAF combat fighter wing. She helped prepare actress, Brie Larson, for the demanding role and taught her about what it takes to be a F-15 fighter pilot in a male-dominated squadron.
In collaboration with Courage to Call, festival organizers will also collect new socks at Family Movie Night for local homeless veterans and military families in need. The average person walks four miles a day, and a homeless person walks approximately 10 miles a day. This is a lot of footwork, and clean warm socks are a true treasure.
