Ft. Benning soldier honored for outstanding off-duty volunteer service

(WTVM) - A soldier stationed at Fort Benning was honored for demonstrating outstanding volunteer service in the community while off-duty.

Sgt. Drew Hunnicutt received the 2018 American Legion Spirit of Service Award, sponsored by the American Legion National Headquarters. Each year, an enlisted active or reserve member of the military is presented the award.

Hunnicutt became a volunteer at Paws Humane Society and contributed many hours to its lifesaving mission. He and his wife also adopted Fritos, a dog who was a resident at Paws Humane for 545 days.

Paws Humane says Fritos is now thriving due to the love received from the Hunnicutts.  The organization also congratulates Hunnicutt on his achievement.
