Surrounded by members of her son's company from the Army National Guard, Gwen French breaks down in tears as she stares at her son Alex's name on the Fallen Heroes Memorial in Lawrenceville on Wednesday. Alex French IV, a Staff Sergeant in the Army National Guard unit based in Lawrenceville was killed on Sept. 30 in Kwhost, Afghanistan, when enemy forces attacked his unit with an improvised-explosive device. French's name was added to the list on the War on Global Terrorism section of the memorial at the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center.
