Sgt. Bruce Alan Reid of Joppa has been chosen by Aberdeen Proving Ground Federal Credit Union as its honoree in this year's "Spotlight a Soldier" program.

Each year, the credit union invites members to submit essay nominations of local military service men or women to be honored. The promotion is launched annually in May, which is Military Appreciation Month.

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.

The APGFCU community charter is defined by geography and is open to everyone who lives, works, worships, volunteers or attends school in Harford County or Cecil County. 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.
