Rear Adm. Tim Alexander Visits Meridian

Rear Admiral Tim Alexander oversees nineteen installations in seven southeastern states and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Alexander also spoke to the Meridian Rotary Club. He says the relationship between Meridian and NAS Meridian is vital.

"It's an important relationship that goes both ways, not just support for the base by the community, and vice versa," said Alexander. "The folks who live and work on the base live in the communities. So we're part of the communities and we certainly appreciate the communities providing in terms of allowing us to do our mission and support our families."

Alexander says the Navy base is also fortunate have ample air space to train aviators, along with other Navy and Marine personnel.
