Alejandro Pardo

Pfc. Alejandro Pardo, age 21, of Porterville, California, died on July 8, 2012, in Maidan Shahr, Wardak Province, Afghanistan, of wounds sustained from the explosion of a roadside bomb. 

He was assigned to the 978th Military Police Company, 93rd Military Police Battalion, Fort Bliss, Texas. 

Alejandro graduated from Granite Hills High School in 2009 and joined the army soon after. He started a 9 month tour of duty in Afghanistan in March of 2012. He had previously served in Korea. 

Mary, pray for Alejandro
Former classmates describe him as shy, well-liked and well-respected. Others describe him as an all-American kid. 

Still others describe him as loving and a man of faith. 

Alejandro is survived by many loving friends and relatives, including his mother.

Pray for the 21 year olds who die in combat.  Yesterday, they were just boys.

Let us pray that Alejandro Pardo is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
