My spouse knew your son well at the academy. He would often tell me stories of a smart cadet who was passionate about science and who he enjoyed talking to and who was very respectful and a strong leader. My thoughts are with your family. Alex will always be in my family's heart.

I knew Alex in high school..... We were a few years apart but I do remember him vividly..... Such a nice guy and extremely smart..... I remember him always holding the door if I walked by.... At first I thought it was because I was an upper classman but I learned that was just In his nature.... My condolences.... And he will be missed....
