For the last few months VX-23 has proudly displayed the “NOLAN” name on F/A-18C #400 in honor of Southern Maryland’s Nolan Scully, whose courageous struggle served as a beacon of hope and inspiration for the entire Salty Dog team.

Despite a heroic battle with cancer, 4-year-old Nolan passed away Feb. 4, 2017.

    Stories like this touch my heart..I can only imagine how it makes the family feel. I followed Nolan story and hearing the news broke my heart. I pray that the family finds strength in knowing that Nolan is no longer suffering..he is free. His amazing story touched the lives of sooooo many. What a little fighter he was. He will forever live in the hearts of many! I hope this plan represents Nolan for a long time! Make him smile down from heaven. #nolanstrong
