SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Folks at Hunter Army Airfield recognized 40 volunteers of the 3rd ID on Friday. The awards are given to military spouses and other volunteers who work to make the community a better place and help families of soldiers. They say it is important to give back to the men and women who sacrifice so much for their country.

"These guys are overseas putting their lives on the line for us, protecting our freedom, and it just feels right to be able to do something for them and their families," said William Faust, Red Cross volunteer.

Earlier this week, nearly 100 men and women were recognized for their volunteer work at fort Stewart.
