Private First Class Alejandro Emilio Ruiz
Reflections on this veteran's military service
Alex is very generous, considerate, and a person who looks out for the well being of others. He has a big loving heart. He was born here in Los Angeles. Alex and his sister Michelle were raised by their single father, and grandmother. He graduated from high school in Arizona, then the family moved back to California. He grew up watching his father serve in the military. He is now a second generation Ruiz family member to serve our country.
Alex joined the U.S. Army in September 2016 and did most of his CAV-SCOUT training in Ft. Benning Georgia. He is now stationed at Ft. Hood, Texas. He is very proud to be serving his country, and so are we.
Alex lives in Lakewood.
