FORT KNOX, Ky. –
Sgt. 1st Class Eddie Quimby, a native of Clinton, Utah, serves as an instructor at the U.S. Army Recruiting and Retention College at Fort Knox, Kentucky. U.S. Army Recruiting Command leadership recently recognized Quimby for his contributions to the mission.
Quimby enlisted in the Army Reserve as military police because he always wanted a career in law enforcement and plans on pursuing that dream when he gets out.
“I enjoy serving the people of the United States and protecting their freedoms,” Quimby said. “The Army has given me some experience that I can put toward a career afterward.”
Quimby is grateful for the genuine time he can spend in his local community because of his role in USAREC. He also takes pride in positively affecting the public's perception of the Army.
He has found success in recruiting and been recognized by being named Seattle Battalion’s Active Guard Reserve Noncommissioned Officer of the Year in FY 17, 6th Recruiting Brigade AGR NCO of the Year in FY 21, and the state of Utah’s Service member of the Year 2023 in the Senior Noncommissioned Officer category.
He also aspires to become a sergeant major one day within this command and to make a positive impact.
“I attribute my success to my wife, Sara Quimby,” Quimby said. “She has been the one to support and motivate me to continue making a positive impact on anyone and everyone I meet.”
When not recruiting, Quimby enjoys volunteering with veteran’s organizations, video games, softball, spending time with his family and is an avid Philadelphia Eagles fan.
