“Heritage is a foundation and with a strong foundation the ceiling can be however high you want it to be,” said Master Sgt. David Whiting, 81st Medical Group diagnostic imaging section chief and Sicangu Lakota Oyate Tribe member. “Native Americans have been through so much over the years and yet, we are still here. That is something I teach to my children and others, life will be tough and throw many things on your path, but yet, you can overcome it all.”
