Citizen Soldier Recognized at Davis-Besse

On Davis-Besse’s Operations Crew #4, he’s known as Unit Supervisor Alex Huber, but at his other job, they call him Lt. Huber.

Alex’s dedication to the other job was recognized recently at a morning Operations department meeting. He received a plaque for his work as a platoon leader for the past three years in the Ohio Army National Guard’s G-Company, 1-134th Field Artillery Unit based near Cleveland. He recently transferred to another Guard unit based near Cincinnati.

“My main job was to keep the 105 mm howitzers supplied with ammunition and the trucks filled with diesel fuel,” Alex said. The company first sergeant is best friends with Ohio Army National Guard veteran and a member of the current Davis-Besse Initial Licensed Operator in Training Brian Walleman, so the two of them worked together to acknowledge Alex.

Alex has worked at Davis-Besse throughout his Army career. It required him to be away from the plant for boot camp, officer candidate school and a basic officer leadership course. He also dedicates two or three weeks every summer and one weekend a month to Uncle Sam. “None of that would be possible without the support of my coworkers and management here at Davis-Besse,” he noted. “I really appreciate it.”
