Aberdeen Proving Ground Federal Credit Union (APGFCU) is proud to announce the selection of Sgt. Bruce Alan Reid of Joppa, Maryland, as the honoree in this year’s “Spotlight a Soldier” program. Each year, the credit union invites members to submit essay nominations of a local military servicemen or women to be honored for their service. The promotion is launched annually in May, which is Military Appreciation Month.

Sgt. Bruce Alan Reid was chosen by a panel of APGFCU judges who reviewed this year’s submissions and selected him as the honoree. Since Sgt. Reid is serving his second deployment to Afghanistan, his father, Thomas Reid, accepted the $500 award on his son’s behalf. Both are members of the credit union.

Founded in 1938 as a not-for-profit financial cooperative, APGFCU originally served civilian and military personnel affiliated with Aberdeen Proving Ground and proudly continues to do so.
