Operation Homefront, a national nonprofit serving America’s military families® since 2002, announced today that Bruce Alexander has joined the organization as its vice president of communications. Alexander, who is a retired Air Force officer, will be based in the national headquarters office located in Arlington, Va.
“Bruce shares our collective passion to give military families the opportunity to thrive, not simply struggle to get by, in the communities they have worked so hard to protect,” said Brig. Gen. (ret.) John I. Pray Jr., president and CEO of Operation Homefront. “He is a great addition to a very talented team.”
Alexander, who is a graduate of the Citadel Military College of South Carolina and Harvard University Senior Fellows Program, came to Operation Homefront from his role as director of communications for the Food & Nutrition Service at the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Additionally, Alexander in this capacity served as a member of the national board of directors for the Combined Federal Campaign.
“As a veteran, each day of my life I strive to be a teammate that came to serve and not be served,” Alexander said. “I’m truly proud to join a team that provides critical financial assistance, (permanent and transitional) housing and support services to military and veteran families – these service members have already sacrificed so very much of their lives for each of us.”
Alexander is a former deputy group and squadron commander, and served as director of public affairs at seven military commands throughout his distinguished military career.
