470th Military Intelligence Brigade Soldiers mentor local students

By Monica Yoas 470th Military Intelligence Brigade Public Affairs

Soldiers from the 470th Military Intelligence Brigade at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston volunteered during their lunch break Sept. 4 to mentor young minds at Bowden Academy, an San Antonio Independent School District campus.

The Soldiers, led by the brigade Command Sgt. Maj. Lee Yoneyama, offered students advice on the importance of staying in school and learning good study habits now to help them in the future.


The school has been the adopted campus of the brigade since 2006, when it was Bowden Elementary School. The soldiers also volunteer as mentors in the Lunch Buddy Program, speak to the students during career days and participate in fitness initiatives among other events."
