The City of Mission invites the public to join us as we dedicate a Mission Street and Park to our Fallen Hero – Spc. Alex D. Gonzalez.

U.S. Army Specialist Alex Daniel Gonzalez, 21, passed away on May 6, 2008, in Mosul, Iraq, from wounds suffered when his vehicle encountered small arms fire and a rocket-propelled grenade attack. Spc. Gonzalez lived in Mission most of his life, and graduated in 2005 from Mission High School. He was laid to rest in the Rio Grande Valley State Veterans Cemetery in Mission.
We are thankful for Spc. Gonzalez, and want to ensure that in his hometown of Mission, he will never be forgotten.
