Brian Suppah visits home after
coming from Bosnia
Brian Suppah just recently
returned to Warm Springs from
Bosnia. Brian is in the Army and has
one year left of duty. Suppah is a
member of the Confederated Tribes
of Warm Springs and is back home
for a few days, before being sent to
Ft. Hood Texas.
On a normal day in Bosnia Suppah
would wakeup eat breakfast and work
on whatever project he was assigned
to, whether it was building a road,
landing pad or parking lot. They
worked from the morning until 5
p.m. or so. Brian is a heavy machine
operator in the Army.
Suppah talked about the people in
Bosnai, stating, "Most of the people
were great and really very nice.
During the time I was their we had no
problems with the locals. "
"Since joining the Army I have
the opportunity to see a lot of places
I would have never thought of going
if I stayed at home. I have been to
New York, Texas, Missouri,
Hungary, Ireland, Germany, Bosnia,
and Croatia. It has opened a lot of
doors for me to travel and see new
places. This has been an adventure
and I think some of the people here
would enjoy it. I would recommend
the Army for someone who likes to
travel," stated Suppah.
"In the Army I have learned values
and that the reservation is small and
there is more out there to see. I am
thinking about re enlisting for two
more years.," Suppah said.
From here, Suppah will go back to
Texas and from there he will go to
one of three places, Honduras,
Panama or Zaire. "I would encourage
people to enlist, to get away and see
some of the world. It is great."
