Congratulations to Atlanta native Petty Officer Tyrell Alexander, currently serving aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72).

Alexander, a two-year Navy veteran and a 2002 Redan High School graduate, is a boatswain’s mate who specializes in handling and maintaining the deck rigging on the ship.

He was recently nominated for Warrior of the Week for outstanding performance in his duties aboard the ship.

The USS Abraham Lincoln is the fifth Nimitz-class aircraft carrier in the United States Navy. She is a member of the U.S. Atlantic Fleet home-ported Norfolk, Va., and she is currently undergoing a 4-year Refueling and Complex Overhaul process.

While its good to recognize outstanding performance in our service members we should also note that Army Capt. Jeremy Haynes, from Albany Ga., was seriously injured during the recent attack in Afghanistan which killed a two star general.
