Warriors honor warriors

507th CSG uses Native American Indian Heritage Month to highlight Warrior EthosSoldiers in the 787th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion paid tribute during Native American Heritage Month with a friendly competition themed, "Honoring Warriors: Past and Present." The competition between the companies highlighted recognition, presentation, creativity and knowledge of the observance.

While each company did an outstanding job researching and presenting their Native American Indian Heritage presentations, one company had a distinct advantage: Spc. Rochelle Bonillas. This is Bonillas' second time deploying with the 541st Transportation Company "Fuel Hogs," and she has only been in the Army for three years. As a vehicle driver, Bonillas has proven herself as a road warrior to the 541st TC. But as a Native American from the Mono tribe in Freno, Calif., she has also proven herself as a warrior to the people who matter the most in her life; her tribe.
