FORT SHAFTER — Volunteers from the 8th Theater Sustainment Command were recognized for their efforts during the Volunteer of the Quarter awards ceremony, here, Oct. 21.

Brittany Peacock, a spouse in the 130th Engineer Brigade, 8th TSC, and Elijah Hindbaugh, a military family member in 45th Sust. Bde., 8th TSC, received the Adult and Child Volunteer of the Quarter awards, respectively, from Maj. Gen. Michael J. Terry, commander, 8th TSC.

Peacock and Hindbaugh were recognized because of their extensive work with the unit and their combined volunteering of more than 150 hours of personal time this quarter.

Peacock ensured the family readiness group contact roster was 100-percent accurate, and she also coordinated more than five FRG meetings, two of which were specifically geared toward spouses in a question-and-answer format. This event allowed spouses to ask any questions they had regarding the unit’s deployment and its two-month training rotation at the National Training Center, Fort Irwin, Calif.

Peacock also worked with multiple spouses who experienced family issues ranging from Red Cross messages to housing and finance problems.

On the day of the unit’s deployment, she worked logistics to ensure availability of refreshments, chairs and shade for family members who were present to say goodbye to their loved ones.

Thanks to her hard work and dedication, the unit’s families were well prepared and educated for the yearlong deployment in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

Hindbaugh serves as a FRG program assistant and a volunteer with the Aliamanu Military Reservation’s Catholic community. He spent most of his fall break volunteering at the FRG resource center and distributed food and beverages to more than 150 parishioners.
