Area I Rising Star Finale
A packed house at the Camp Casey Warrior’s Club welcomed the final round of Operation Rising Star Oct. 10. More than 50 Area I singers began this journey just three weeks ago. Gregory Gregg is the first-place winner; Kyra White second-place and Sue Sapp third. Gregg moves forward in the competition to be considered at the Pacific Region level. Because of this brief timeline, two "wild card" active-duty service members will also be selected from video submissions to compete in the San Antonio finals. Performer Nally Sample and her supporters captured the Spirit Award, banking $300 for the FTAB, 333d Field Artillery’s unit fund.
