SSG Scott G. Alexander, son of Payson residents Tom and Judy Alexander, returned from a 15-month deployment in Iraq.
SSG Alexander has been serving with the 2ACR, out of Ft. Polk, La. and is currently inPayson enjoying a reunion with his young children, family and friends.
Alexander will soon be stationed at Ft. Knox, Ky. as a drill instructor as he continues his military service.
His reunion has included a trip to the bowling alley, Tonto Natural Bridge, several campgrounds and parks, elk and javalina spotting as well as a fantastic plane ride over the Rim.
Alexander calls Payson "home" and has been impressed with the outpouring of support from our small town, as many individuals and businesses responded to the "Adopt a Soldier" campaign during the holidays.
Thank you, Payson.
