  1. This was a great event started by a few Warbird fans that wanted to do something for the community and recognize the local Veterans. The group formed Warriors & Warbirds in 2005 and grew the show through hard work by volunteers and other nonprofit groups. In 2012 several individuals with the City of Monroe decided they wanted the show and took it from the group. It is slowing changing into a non Warbird/Veterans event into a corporate/political display.
