Uniquely ukulele: Airman plays from the heart

Tech. Sgt. Daniel Baduria plays his ukulele as the opening act for Tops In Blue Sept. 12 at the Waikiki Shell in Honolulu. He inherited his music talent from his father, Donald Baduria, who was an Airman with the Strolling Strings Trio in the Air Force's Tops In Blue entertainment showcase in the 1950s. Sergeant Badura played as part of the Heritage to Horizons theme of the Air Force's 60th anniversary. Tops In Blue, the Air Force's signature entertainment group, gave a free performance for the public to celebrate Air Force Week Honolulu and the Air Force's 60th anniversary. Sergeant Baduria is an aircraft fuel systems specialist with the Hawaii Air National Guard's 154th Wing. (U.S. Air Force photo/Tech. Sgt. Shane A. Cuomo)
