Eleven talented Soldiers have stepped up to the challenge of competing in this year’s Operation Rising Star. In a series of eliminations, each competitor will have the opportunity to take the stage and have their vocal abilities critiqued by judges and audience members.

Four contestants have returned from previous year’s competitions to take another chance at advancing past the installation level and performing at the Army-wide finals.

Returning as master of ceremonies is 1st Sgt. Anthony Roscoe, 266th Quartermaster Battalion, 23rd QM Brigade.

Fort Lee’s Operation Rising Star will be held at the Regimental Club, Sunday, Sept. 16, 23 and 30, 6:30 p.m.
