Staff Sgt. Alex French IV, 31, of Milledgeville, was a member of the National Guard's 48th Brigade, which deployed to Afghanistan earlier this year.
He was killed on September 30th. His body was due to arrive at the local Milledgeville airport at 8:00 a.m. but the weather has prevented the plane from landing here. He will now be taken to the Macon Georgia airport around 12:30 p.m. today and the procession will make its way to Millegeville around 2:30 p.m. today.
My husband will be there to show his support to the family and respect to Staff Sgt. French. Although younger than my husband they have walked the same path.
Staff Sgt. French entered the Navy after high school and served until 2000. That's the same year my husband was honorable discarged from the army. And although their paths did not intersect Staff Sgt. French went to work where my husband did in Milledgeville GA with the GA dept. of Corrections in 2001. He later took a job with the Bibb County Sheriff's department where he was employed when his guard unit was called up.
My heart goes out to his family and my husband and I will be there to honor him when he comes home for the final time today.
