Virginia Army National Guard Capt. Chris Lee, a 2016 Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets alumnus, was selected as the Hokie Hero for the Dec. 29 New Era Pinstripe Bowl.

Lee is deployed to Iraq, where he serves as a transportation officer with the 329th Regional Support Group. He is part of the base operating support integrator staff, responsible for overseeing all logistics operations for the airbase, including contracted services.

Born in Germany to military parents and raised in Hampton, Virginia, Lee earned a degree in environmental policy and planning from the College of Architecture and Urban Studies and a minor in leadership studies from the corps’ Rice Center for Leader Development.

The Hokie Hero program honors corps alumni who are deployed. Recipients are highlighted by Jon Laaser and Mike Burnop during their radio broadcast of Hokie football games, on the Corps of Cadets website, and in the Corps Review alumni magazine.
