There is nothing like working with Army Entertainment.We have been in production for the finals of Operation Rising Star. Every year around the globe, garrisons hold singing competitions. Every year in December, the finals take place in San Antonio at Ft Sam Houston. Amazingly, the Soldiers at Army Entertainment, with the guidance of a few very gifted civilian staff, produce an incredibly professional broadcast production, similar to what you might see on one of the major channels. I am so proud to have been a part of the excitement this year. Tune in to to watch the unfolding of the winner. The talent from our Army Family was extraordinary. The online voter turnout totaled near 130,ooo. I won’t tell you who the winner is because I have sworn not to tell. Go to to see for yourself.
