The American dream is still alive, especially in the United States Army.
According to Fort Campbell leaders, anyone who wants to strive for a better life can obtain it, no matter what their background is, through hard work.
39-year old Luis Thomas of Delta Company, 1-32 Cavalry Regiment can attest to that theory since after 18-years of serving in the military he was recently promoted to the rank of 1st Sergeant, which is a non-commissioned officer position in the Army.
Thomas then went onto say that he is thankful that he is able to mentor younger soldiers into becoming future leaders one day.
The 39-year old First Sergeant recently trained soldiers to properly conduct a convoy mission during a live-fire exercise that Thomas says is very realistic and essential in keeping soldiers alive in combat.
