Typically, this space is used to honor the fans of the teams that call Tampa Bay home. This week, in honor of Veterans Day, we’re spotlighting two of many, many people of whom WE are fans. Senior Master Sgt. Bob Dearie and Senior Master Sgt. Chris Melnik were among those service members on hand Tuesday night at the St. Pete Times Forum to participate in the Military Night festivities presented by the Tampa Bay Lightning. Both men are assigned to the 6th Communications Squadron (6CS) at MacDill Air Force Base. The 6CS is tasked with providing world class communications, airfield, multimedia, & conference support to the 6th Air Mobility Wing, two combatant commands, and 49 other mission partners while training and equipping communications professionals to support deployments worldwide. SB Nation Tampa Bay salutes these professionals, as well as all service members past, present and future, as well as heir families, for their sacrifices on our behalf and for their role in serving our nation. We’d also like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy and safe Veterans Day.
