    Apr 30, 2009

    It can be kind of fun being the youngest person to be recognized at a volunteer awards luncheon.

But the thing 8-year-old Ahmahd Basham liked the best about the 25th annual Installation Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon on April 21 was the commander's coin that Maj. Gen. Jim Myles slipped into his pocket. It was also kind of neat for the second-grader to be honored at a luncheon that included his friend - 9-year-old, third-grader Imani Walker.
