Soldiers turn out to greet children on first day of school

By Monica Yoas 470th Military Intelligence Brigade Public Affairs

Students from Bowden Elementary School in the San Antonio Independent School District were greeted by soldiers from the 470th Military Intelligence Brigade at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston during their walk in to the first day of school Aug. 14.


Almost 30 soldiers took time from their day to respond to the early morning call of safety, guarding the children into their school campus for the first time as summer break came to an end.


Bowden Elementary is the adopted campus for the brigade. Soldiers participate in various activities with the students year-round serving as mentors and being positive role models in the lives of the students.
