About CMSAF9 James C. Binnicker
This race is named in honor of the Air Force Enlisted Village's late President and CEO James C. Binnicker who served our country as the 9th Chief Master Sergeant of the United States Air Force. As AFEV President and CEO, Binnicker had dreams of providing world-class, yet affordable, homes for surviving spouses of retired enlisted USAF members and to mothers of current active duty and retired military members. Under Binnicker's leadership from 2000 to 2015, the Air Force Enlisted Village constructed Hawthorn House, a 64 unit assisted living and memory support residence on the Bob Hope Village campus, and grew the campus to 96 apartments now known as Village 5. Binnicker passed away in March of 2015, but his dream and memory live on at Bob Hope Village.
