LANGLEY AIR FORCE BASE -- Four members of the U.S. Air Force Heritage of America Band will sing God Bless America during the 7th inning stretch of tonight's World Series game at Fenway Park.

The U.S. Air Force Heritage of America Band is stationed at Joint Base Langley-Eustis.

Master Sgt. Jennifer Dashnaw, Tech. Sgt. Quez Vasquez, Tech. Sgt. Niko Ellison and Staff Sgt. Rachel Webber will perform for millions of viewers around the world during game six between the Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals.

"Truly, in the same way that baseball brings a lot of fun and exciting entertainment to audiences in the US and around the world, our Air Force Bands are hitting 'home runs' every day -- bringing joy to millions of listeners around the globe each year.  We are excited that four of our Airmen-musicians are getting this opportunity tonight," said Raymond S. Landon, Musical Resources Specialist with Heritage of America Band.
