Why we serve: From African refugee to US soldier

Spc. Alfred Kollie, E Company, Task Force Wolfpack, 82nd Combat Aviation Brigade, joined the Army in 2010, just a short time after moving to the U.S. from Africa, where he spent much of his life in refugee camps escaping civil war in Liberia. Kollie is a petroleum supply specialist on Forward Operating Base Salerno, Afghanistan. "I do my best to learn my job with perfection," said Kollie. "I always try to be 100%, because this job is dangerous and you always have to be on point. If you make a mistake, it can cost your life or someone else theirs."
