TULSA AIR NATIONAL GUARD BASE, Okla. -- The 138th Fighter Wing senior non-commissioned officer council recently decided to reactivate the "Rising 6", a volunteer organization which helps technical sergeants and below have a voice on base and establish rapport and morale for young airmen.

Staff Sgt. Melissa Montgomery, the program's president and full time maintenance group command support staff technician on base, seeks to promote the organization through extracurricular activities.

"I wanted to do more to do more than just my job on base," says Montgomery, "I wanted to give to others on base other than what I can do on paper."

Montgomery states that, "there will be extracurricular activities involved such as community service and peer to peer counseling, as well as group bowling and trampoline dodge ball so that airmen get to know each other besides just being part of a group, but to do things together and have fun."

The "Rising 6" plans to have meetings once every drill weekend and to coordinate group projects and activities for airmen to participate in throughout the year.
