FORT HOOD , Texas - “The word ‘volunteer’ is defined as person who performs a service willingly , without the promise of credit or reward . The seco......nd part of that definition is truly what’s important – no promise of credit or reward , ” Col . Chad R . Foster , commander of U . S . Army Garrison – Fort Hood , told the crowd gathered here in the West Atrium of III Corps Headquarters . “The only thing you thought about was the need , and that really says it all . If that was as common as we’d like , I think the world would be a much better place . What you are doing is , indeed , making our world a much better place - making our community stronger and making Fort Hood stronger . ” The top three nominees for the III Corps and Fort Hood Volunteer of the Year were honored for their service and commitment , April 21 . Andrea Kim , a volunteer with Carl R . Darnall Army Medical Center , was named the Volunteer of the Year . “I’m really nervous , ” Kim said about the recognition . “I just helped plan the family fun events , like Easter , trunk - or - treat and breakfast with Santa . ” Andrea Kim ( right ) , along with her husband , 1st Sgt .

Andrea was named Fort Hood ' s top volunteer at a ceremony , April 21 . Kim is the spouse of 1st Sgt . Hyun Kim , first sergeant of Headquarters and Headquarters Troops , CRDAMC . She said she enjoys volunteering , but also feels like , as the spouse of a senior enlisted Soldier , it’s her responsibility to provide that positive example to military spouses . “We try to make it ( volunteering ) as fun as possible , ” Kim said . “Honestly , it feels good to fill a need , but mostly , it’s just showing up and being willing to help . ” The other two top finalists were Dr . Bill Abright , who volunteers with the Directorate of Public Works; and Maria Penya , who volunteers with Fort Hood’s Santa’s Workshop . Penya was unable to make it to the ceremony , but Abright said he volunteers because he enjoys working with Soldiers and working to save the environment . Abright said he specializes in searching for zebra mussels , an invasive , fingernail - sized mollusk that is native to fresh waters . He also looks at wildlife and plant coverage to make sure things are growing properly . He also volunteers his time at the American Red Cross on Fort Hood . “I do it for fun and just enjoy it , ” Abright said . “I do all this stuff because it’s enjoyable . ” The other honorees include Kaley Hebrebrand , youth category; Caleb Myers , youth category; Haelyn Hendrix , youth category; Jordan Hendrix , youth category; the Church family , family category; Sgt .

Diane Williams , program manager of the Fort Hood Volunteer Corps , said that , because of the constant movement of Soldiers and family members , the number of volunteers changes daily . “Currently , we have a little over 5 , 800 active volunteers registered , ” she added . To show a representation of those hours , they presented a giant check to Lt . Gen . Pat White and Command Sgt . Maj .
