ROBERT F. DEMETER CHAPTER SERVICE AWARD FOR 2016 by Juan Chavez

by Juan Chavez

It was my pleasure to present the Robert F. DeMeter Chapter Service Award for 2016 to LTC (Ret) Ralph W. Hinrichs, Jr. at our annual Awards and Recognition Luncheon at McKellar’s Lodge on the 25th of March 2017. The DeMeter award is the most prestigious award the Chapter can bestow upon one of its members.

The citation reads as follows: “For sustained outstanding service as Personal Affairs Officer, Cape Fear Chapter, from February 2015 to December 2016. Additionally, he assumed the responsibilities of Honor Guard Coordinator, writing its first standing operating procedures; Chapter Liaison to USO Fort Bragg, while serving as a USO volunteer himself; and, agent to the Red Cross , and veterans services agencies. Whatever the mission, LTC Hinrichs executed it enthusiastically without complaint or anticipation of reward. His substantial contributions are worthy of the highest esteem and completely justify his selection as the 2016 recipient of this coveted award.”

Congratulations Ralph, all of us owe you a debt of gratitude for your dedicated service and unselfish contributions to the chapter.
