Army Specialist Aaron Alexander Mobilized
June 11, 2008 - Army National Guard Spec. Aaron T. Alexander has been mobilized and activated at Fort Dix, N.J., for a deployment overseas to a forward operating base in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. The soldier is a member of the 38th Military Police Company, a National Guard unit based in Danville.
Operation Iraqi Freedom is the official name given to military operations involving members of the U.S. armed forces and coalition forces participating in efforts to free and secure Iraq. Mission objectives focus on force protection, peacekeeping, stabilization, security and counter-insurgency operations as the Iraqi transitional governing bodies assume full sovereign powers to govern the peoples of Iraq.
Members from all branches of the U.S. military and multinational forces are also assisting in rebuilding Iraq's economic and governmental infrastructure, and training and preparing Iraqi military and security forces to assume full authority and responsibility in defending and preserving Iraq's sovereignty and independence as a democracy.
Alexander, a military police member, has served in the military for two years.
He is the son of Rodney L. and Penny L. Alexander of East Morgan St., Knightstown.
His wife, Erica, is the daughter of Lowell and Jessica M. Lynn of South State Road 75, Coatesville.
The specialist graduated from a home school program in 2004.
