I continue to serve because I love mentoring the Soldiers I work with and the Army still makes me feel like I'm contributing to something that's bigger than myself and my inner circle. I continue to feel proud of what I'm doing every day I put on the uniform.

Gillem ENclave, Ga. - Command Chief Warrant Officer Fred Hodges joined the Army in 1984 after realizing college wasn’t for me at the time. I was not doing anything promising but wanted to prove that I can succeed in life; the Army gave me that opportunity. And later in life the joy of serving with my wife and sons. I continue to serve because I love mentoring the Soldiers I work with and the Army still makes me feel like I'm contributing to something that's bigger than myself and my inner circle. I continue to feel proud of what I'm doing every day I put on the uniform.
