FORT RUCKER, Ala. (April 12, 2012) -- Miss Wiregrass Area Katie Andrews joins Army and Air Force Exchange Service and Fort Rucker community members in celebrating the Month of the Military Child April 20 at the main exchange mall area when she, along with post mothers and daughters, will model spring fashions for the lunchtime crowd beginning at 11 a.m.
Andrews will also sing several selections from her repertoire to promote the upcoming Salute to the Troops performance scheduled for May 4 at 3 p.m. at the post theater.
Salute to the Troops is a fast-paced talent revue by area Miss Alabama contenders. For the third consecutive year, Fort Rucker Soldiers and Family members are invited to let their hair down for a 60-minute fest of singing, dancing and colorful entertainment in honor of their service to the nation.
To give prospective theater-goers an idea of what to expect, the young ladies will perform a preview of the show from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. May 4 at the main exchange mall.
"Both the April 20 fashion show and performance with Katie, and the May 4 preview with the entire Salute to the Troops cast, are wonderful opportunities for Fort Rucker Soldiers and their Families to meet these fine young ladies and maybe even get a photo or autograph," said Don Walter Jr., AAFES store manager.
