Native American Soldier returns home to help recruiting mission
GALLUP, N.M. —
As a youngster Sgt. Ignacio Alvarez dreamed of leaving his hometown of Gallup, tied down by the lack of opportunity and action.
Joining the Army was his way out, something he did at the age of 17, never looking back.
Eight years later he finds himself back in Gallup, recruiting for the Albuquerque Recruiting Company and making a difference in people’s lives.
