Eric L. Bazile, is a Disabled Veteran who was born in Vallejo, California.  He served in the U.S. Army as a Transportation Logistics NCO (Non-Commissioned Officer, Sergeant/E-5) from 1993 – 2003.  September 25, 2001, Eric was diagnosed with having a Brain Aneurysm, which required four cranial surgeries, an artery clip, and a plate.  After 10 years of service to his country, Eric was Honorably Discharged (due to his medical condition) from the military.

As a civilian, Eric found life to be a rough road to travel due to his medical condition (limiting his employability) and a slow recovering economy.  After living and working in multiple cities and states, Eric would relocate back to Boise, Idaho in 2009.  During his travels, he was finally granted 100% disability by Veteran Affairs and received the help he needed.

January 2016, Eric married Lisa De La Cruz, who is now happily Mrs. Bazile.  Between the two of them, they have a total of seven wonderful children. Currently he is an active member and officer in two separate non-profit organizations.  One being the Secretary of the Treasure Valley NAACP Branch, where he was recently honored with the Rosa Parks Award for his support with the 2016 Western Idaho Fair Scholarship Fundraising event.  He is also the presiding Worshipful Master of Sabre Lodge No. 7, F. & A.M. (PHA) of the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge for the States of Oregon, Idaho, and Montana Inc. The lodge conducts and participates in a variety of annual charity events in the Mountain Home and Boise community.
