The 17th Force Support Squadron continues to boost morale by hosting events across base. A1C Matthew Angulo reports on this year's Goodfellow's Got Talent.

GOODFELLOW AIR FORCE BASE, Texas --

Magical, mind-reading sloth is not a title heard very often, but this is how Lt. Col. Yukio Kuniyuki, 344th Military Intelligence Battalion commander, introduced his assistant, Chappie, to help with his routine during the 2nd, base-wide, Goodfellow’s Got Talent Show, June 8.

Friends and family joined participants at the Event Center for the talent show, ending with the top three performer’s receiving prizes.

“I think this is the most fun I have ever seen at a talent show,” said Pvt. Chris Frazier, 344th Military Intelligence Battalion trainee, who played the keyboard and sang and was this year’s winner. “My friends encouraged me to come out, and I am so glad they did.”

A mixed panel of permanent party, trainees, officer and enlisted, made up the judges for this competition. The judges provided comments on each performance.

The acts included stand-up comedy, music and a magic show. Performers who chose to showcase musical talent could play an instrument of their choice or sing, and some chose both.

“This is a great opportunity to show the students that at the end of the day we are just like them,” said Lt. Col. Salomon, 17th Training Support Squadron commander, one of the judges for the show. “What I enjoyed most was our people took a risk and made themselves vulnerable to a diverse audience. The end result is a valuable experience.”
