My name is Michael David Hughes. I am a former United States Army Officer. From August 1981 to September 1983. I am currently the Sports Director of Hunter Army Airfield 3rd Infantry Division Directorate of Moral, Welfare and Recreation. I have been in this position for the past 32 years.


I serve as the chief of Sports, Athletics and Intramural Programs for a Community of 15,000+individuals consisting of 100% of total troops, officers, dependents and retired personnel. As the professional sports authority on the installation, I serve as the principal advisor to the Installation Commander on sports and policies. I also provide advice and technical assistance to unit commanders in conducting their unit level sports programs.

As a leader and manager, I have demonstrated in-depth knowledge and skill in conducting, training, handling administrative functions and counseling individuals on professional development and problem solving. From 2004 to 2006 I served at the United States Army Garrison Kaiserslautern, Germany as the Sports Programmer for the 415th BSB Klaber Kersern.


From 2001 to 2003 I served as the Assistant MWR Officer, DIS ARCENT KUWAIT, Camp Doha Kuwait and assisted in the management of programs for an international community of United States multi service personnel in excess of 3500 military, civilians and contractor personnel. In addition to this supported several annual rotations of Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) deployments and other contingency training unit deployments.


My background reflects experience in supervision, administration business management, sports and athletic programs. I am self motivated achiever with a high regard for honesty, reliability and commitment. I have for several years been in seminary perusing a Doctorate of Ministry. It is this road God has placed me on to reach others in hopes of enlightenment. To lead and express the Goodness of God’s word. As a cancer patient and survivor I am compelled to seek the light and bring those who are lost out of darkness. By reading these words my prayer is that enlighten hearts and minds will be informed about the goodness of God.
