The U.S. Army Electronic Proving Ground (EPG) bids farewell to their Chief of the E4/TEMPST and Antenna Division, Byron Alexander, after 27 years of federal service.
Alexander enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps in 1974 and was commissioned two years later.
His military career brought him to Fort Huachuca, Arizona a couple of times. He was assigned to the Joint Test Facility, Joint Test Element of the Joint Tactical Communications Office and the U.S. Marine Corps System Command Liaison Officer to the EPG, the Intelligence Electronic Warfare Test Directorate and the U.S. Army Intelligence Center.
Alexander continued to serve at Fort Huachuca after he retired from his military service in 1995. He worked for Vitro Services, Comarco Incorporated, and eventually returned back to EPG. In 2009, he was the Facility Manager of the Environmental Test Facility. Four years later, Alexander was appointed as the Chief of the E4/TEMPST and Antenna Division, where he remained until his retirement.
“His dedication, knowledge, and Marine look will be missed,” said COL Rob Barnhill, Commander EPG. “A man who has been a part of EPG for a long time, will now enjoy his retirement, and be able to reflect on the accomplishments here.”
