February 1, 2022 Special officer for the US army and Alta Loma High School’s very own Alex J. Ram was killed. He was overseas serving his country in Syria. Ram graduated from ALHS in 2019 and further joined the Army in 2019. He graduated from basic training in May of 2020 and then went to his first station out in Colorado. This solider will never be forgotten but always remembered. Ram was so young and died serving his country.

Ram was an army specialist officer and at twenty years old sadly died in Syria serving his country. The incident that killed Ram is still under investigation and no further details have been shared. In memorial for Ram flags were to fly half staffed cross California per orders. Ram will always be remembered as a very brave solider who gave the ultimate sacrifice to this country and never asked for anything in return.

A parade was set out for special officer Alex J Ram when he was flown home. The same type of thing happened when the 13 U.S. soldiers were killed in a suicide bombing in Afghanistan and who were from here. People lined up down streets with flags and signs in memorial of Alex J Ram, it was a special sight to see. This officer will never be forgotten and always be remembered especially at Alta Loma since he went here and was an Alta Loma High School Brave.
