AMARILLO – She has served our country since 1999 and she is still going strong.

That is why it's important to honor her for that bravery.

We are saluting Tech Sergeant Melinda Reyes from Dimmitt.

She is serving in the Air Force.

Tech Sgt. Reyes currently is deployed in Afghanistan.

Her family writes, "We love and miss you! And they hope she returns home safely” As do we!

From all of us here at KAMR NBC 4, Thank You Tech Sgt. Reyes for your service.
