JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-LACKLAND, Texas --

The 433rd Airlift Wing Top 3 and Rising 6 hosted the 2019 C-5 Rodeo Round-Up Breakfast here Feb. 8. Members from both groups prepared and served a variety of breakfast tacos, coffee, and juice to wing personnel.

This event’s objective is strengthening bonds within in the Alamo Wing.

“Our goal for the event we do every year is to build camaraderie,” said Senior Master Sgt. David Delgado, 433rd Operations Group standardization and evaluation, and Top 3 vice president. “This is what the Top 3 does for our wing. We have the rising 6 here also. We want to get everybody together and boost our membership in the Top 3 and Rising 6 organizations. It’s what we’re doing for our wing and community,”

The breakfast, which had a break in service is an annual tradition.

Delgado said he and a friend realized the breakfast hadn’t happened in a few years, so they received the wing commander’s approval to revive it.
