Bradley Volk BA ’83

  • 02/01/2018

    Bradley Volk BA ’83, who retired in July 2017 from the U.S. Air Force reserves, served in the Judge Advocate General’s Corp for a combined 28 years of active and reserve duty. While on active duty, he had assignments in California, Korea, Germany, and Florida. He especially enjoyed his military experience in Korea–so much so, in fact, that he later returned to work as a teacher for about one and one-half years. Volk also served many years as a reservist at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, near Tacoma, Washington. As it turned out, one of his classmates worked as the wing commander at Volk’s reserve base. Volk gives credit to Lewis & Clark for helping him develop “a lifelong interest in foreign countries.” While a student, he participated in the Munich overseas study program. His wife is from Russia, so he’s traveled there several times and enjoys Russian culture. The couple are members of the Russian Orthodox Church abroad. Volk works as a civilian lawyer.
