1st Air Cav Native American medic continues tradition of hard work

Spc. Brandon Wolf, a Kingston, Okla., native and health care specialist with Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 1st Air Cavalry Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division, prepares a needle to administer intravenous fluid to a Soldier at Troop Medical Clinic 12 at Hood Army Airfield, Fort Hood, Texas, Nov. 12. Being of Chickasaw and Choctaw decent, Wolf grew up on American Indian territory alongside eight siblings and was taught the value of hard work at an early age from his blue-collar dad and no-nonsense mother. American Indians have a distinguished legacy in the Army. Thousands have served in the armed forces from the early days of the Revolutionary War, with the Lewis and Clark expedition, as Scouts with the U.S. Cavalry, and as code talkers in World War II.
