Ft. Bliss Family selected as DA Family of the Year



The Bradley Chapter nominee, SFC Charles and Virginia Hindbaugh, children Celia, Chalia, Acia, Charles III, Elijah and Levi,  were selected as the 2014 Department of the Army Volunteer Family of the year. AUSA flew the family too Washington, DC to attend the Annual AUSA National Convention.


They were honored at the convention’s Opening Ceremony and were the guests of AUSA at all the functions hosted by the National Office during the convention. 


Mrs. Hindbaugh shared this story about the family’s return home from DC,   “On our way home yesterday I listened to my children thank me for inspiring them to volunteer.  My 12 year old son, Levi said…”first you voluntold us…but then we wanted to do it…now I see that we make a difference…”  There is more to follow , but I would have been remiss if I did not begin my day THANKING YOU for this immeasurable opportunity and blessing to experience the brilliance and tradition and steadfast service of our Nation’s GREATEST FIGHTING FORCE as a Family!


The Bradley Chapter is proud that for the second year in a row, a Fort Bliss family has been selected as the Family of the Year.
