“I recognize in myself a complete and compelling spirit to satisfy the needs and desires of the retired and veteran community. To me, the very best way to get the job done is through volunteering to serve those who need service – whether they realize they need it or not.”

Retired U.S. Air Force Chief Master Sgt. James Ingram served in the United States Air Force with great pride for over thirty years “to be a part of preserving America’s way of life.” Yet even in retirement, his service continues. Ingram is the 23d Wing Retiree Activities Office director at Moody Air Force Base where he supports over 8,400 military retirees and surviving spouses. He helps them obtain federal benefits and provides any resources they need.

In June, he attended the Jefferson Awards National Ceremony representing WFXL.

To date Ingram has recruited 120 volunteers, seizing any opportunity to show retirees that they are still an integral part of the military family. The office organizes events such as retiree appreciation week, a golf tournament, and heath care fairs while offering casualty assistance and releasing a twice yearly newsletter.

“I recognize in myself a complete and compelling spirit to satisfy the needs and desires of the retired and veteran community,” he said. “To me, the very best way to get the job done is through volunteering to serve those who need service – whether they realize they need it or not.”

Ingram was honored with a Jefferson Award by WFXL and was selected to represent southwest Georgia at the Jefferson Awards National Ceremony. The WFXL Jefferson Awards are sponsored by Kenneth Nugent, PC. To learn more, visit WFXL.com.
