Service with a song: 433 TRS MTI sings for service and country

Technical Sgt. Hilary Reyes, a 433rd Training Squadron military training instructor, poses for a photo with General Edward A. Rice Jr., the commander of Air Education and Training Command, minutes before she takes the microphone to sing, “The Star-Spangled Banner,” during the opening ceremony of the San Antonio Missions Military Appreciation Night, July 20, 2011 at Nelson Wolff Stadium. The four-star general from Randolph Air Force Base, Texas, took a moment to meet and greet the Air Force Reserve NCO, as a sign of support and encouragement before she sang for the first time at a public sporting event. “Tech. Sgt. Reyes sang our national anthem brilliantly during the pre-game ceremonies for the Missions game. She represented our United States Air Force well and the crowd certainly showed its appreciation for her talents. I am sure she will have many more opportunities to showcase her talent,” commented Gen. Edward A. Rice Jr., Air Education and Training Command commander, who threw out the first pitch during the game’s opening ceremony. (U.S. Air Force photo/senior Airman Luis Loza Gutierrez)
