Military Family

Veteran Family Serves with Honor

For Alexander Hall, serving his country has always been an honor. And, serving his community has become a privilege. Along with his family, wife Valerie (Hess) Hall, and daughter Alexis Hall, this military family has become a staple in the Claymont community. Every other Friday, the family serves the local community by volunteering at a community food drive. The Halls also work with a non-profit organization called Senior Lift, helping to train and teach older adults and youth to use technology more efficiently, and bridge the generational gap.

Hall served in the U.S. Air Force as an Aircraft Armament Specialist. This weapon systems mechanic used his skills to load and unload ammunition, and maintain weapon systems during Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF). Dedicated to continuing his service once returning home to the Claymont area, Hall and family were steadfast in finding a niche in the community. And, that’s where the Claymont library has played an integral part.

“The library has been a great resource for our family, and our community in many ways,” says Valerie Hall. “We’ve taken our daughter there since she was very little, and now she loves to read! We are always renting books, movies, etc. for research, school, or just for fun.” she continues."

Alexander and his wife Valerie are all about family values. They love camping, road trips, and just hanging out together. But, their true passion is volunteering, helping others, and working with other veteran families to get involved.

“We enjoy helping our community and volunteering any way we can,” says the Halls. “It’s an honor and privilege to serve here in the Claymont community.”
