Hometown hero Private First Class Michael Holmstrom is a cannon crewmember with Alpha Battery, 28th Field Artillery, 125th Stryker Brigade Combat Team stationed at Fort Wainwright, Alaska.

Originally a dairy worker from Bartlesville, OK, Holmstrom was inspired by his family's tradition of service to join the military. His father, grandfather, and great-grandfather all served as well.

He says he makes the most of his time in Alaska by hunting, snowboarding, and earning a certification in rock climbing.  He is also pursuing a private pilot's license and hopes to one day to work in occupational therapy.

A special thanks to PFC Michael Holmstrom for his dedication and hardwork in the service of our country.
