Staff Sgt. Eugene Alex was wounded by small-arms fire on his 32nd birthday. He was a wonderful husband and excellent father of two boys and a girl, ages 11, 8, and 6. He grew up in Reese and later lived in Bay City, but was back in Alaska earlier in the year recuperating for three months from neck injuries he sustained when his unit was hit by a roadside bomb in Iraq. Eugene joined the Army in May 1996 after he recently married and had been working at a granary when he decided to enlist so that he could better provide for his family. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, woodworking and camping. In addition to his children, Alex is survived by his wife, Melissa; his parents, Ronald and Sally Alex of Greenie, and two sisters. He died at Landstuhl Medical Center in Landstul, Germany from injuries suffered in Baghdad while serving with the 172 Stryker Brigade Combat Team at age 32.
