Listen to “National Native American Heritage Month CELEBRATING CONTRIBUTIONS OF NATIVE AMERICAN SOLDIERS” on Spreaker.
Each November, we take time to reflect on the lasting contributions that Native Americans have made to our nation and our Army. The Army Reserve honors the rich cultures and enduring service of the tribal nations and sends gratitude to the more than 150,000 veterans of Native American and Alaskan Native descent.
Native Americans have a proud legacy of military service, dating all the way back to the Indian Wars in the 1600s. These Soldiers have served with honor, dedication, and distinction and continue a long legacy of professionalism and selfless service.
As we celebrate Native American Heritage Month, the Army Reserve recognizes the importance of inclusivity and understands the value individuals bring through their lived experiences. America and its people have changed throughout history, but the spirit and culture of indigenous people can be seen throughout society and our Army Reserve.
This Veterans Day, the Smithsonian will be honoring their military service with the formal dedication of the National Native American Veterans Memorial.
Lieutenant Colonel Kyle Scherer will discuss the importance of the memorial and the impact Native Americans have on the Army Reserve.
