Alex.... Here I am once again at work, Lookin' at your
memorial page it makes me sad but I'm so proud of all you did while you
were alive. You truly did more in a year and a half then most people
will do in a whole life time. The great thing about what we do is that we
do it for no recognition but because it's in our hearts to die for
others like you did. I want you to know that I ove you so much and i will
always miss you!! I can't wait to see you again until then you will
never be forgotten...but remembered as a true hero! I'll be thinkin about
you everyday....your soldada

La Última Inspección
El soldado se paro y miro a su dios,
Que todo el tiempo tendrá que pasar
El deseo que sus zapatos brillaran
Brillante como un latón
"Adelante ahora soldado,
Como voy a tratarte?
Has volteado la otra mejilla?
A mi iglesia has sido puro?”
El soldado se puso sus hombros cuadrados y dijo,
“No Dios, yo pienso que no
Porque nosotros que cargamos armas,
No todo el tiempo podes ser santos,
Y e tenido que trabajar muchos Domingos
Y a tiempo mi vocabulario ha sido muy fuerte,
He tenido que quebrar sus mandamientos
Porque el mundo es muy duro.
Pero nunca me quede con ningún centavo,
Que no fuera mío para quedarme
Aunque trabaje mucho tiempo de más,
Cuando las cuentas se acumulaban mucho.
Nunca le negué la ayuda a alguien que la necesitara
Aunque a veces tuve temor,
Y algunas veces, Dios perdóneme,
He llorado lagrimas que no son de hombre.
Yo se que no merezco un lugar
Con la gente que esta aquí,
Ellos nunca me quisieron,
Nomás para relajar sus temores.
Si tienes un lugar para mí aquí Dios,
No tendría que ser muy grande
Yo nunca esperaba o he tenido mucho
Pero si no, yo lo entiendo.”
Hubo silencio en todo el palacio
Donde los santos muy frecuentemente andan
Donde el soldado esperaba calladamente,
Para su juzgar de dios
“Adelante ahora soldado,
Haz vivido tu vida bien
Camine en paz en las calles del cielo
Haz hecho su tiempo en el infierno”
Alex I miss you so much. But I am So proud of you. You are my hero, not a day goes by that I don't miss you
I am sorry for Crying but it makes me feel better.

The Final Inspection
The soldier stood and faced GOD, Which must always come to pass. He
hoped his shoes were shining, just as brightly as his brass. "Step
forward now, you soldier, & How shall I deal with you? Have you always
turned the other cheek? To My Church have you been true?" The soldier
squared his shoulders and said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't. Because
those of us who carry guns, Can't always be a saint. I've had to work
most Sundays, And at times my talk was tough. And sometimes I've been violent, Because the world is
awfully rough. But, I never took a penny, That wasn't mine to
keep... Though I worked a lot of overtime, when the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help, Though at times I shook with
fear. And sometimes, GOD, forgive me, I've Wept unmanly Tears
I know I don’t deserve a place a among the people here.
They never wanted me around, Except to calm their fears. If you've a
place for me her, LORD, It needn't be so grand, I never expected or had
to much, But if you don’t, I'll understand. There was a silence all
around the throne. where the saints had often trod. As the Soldier
waited quietly, for the judgement of his GOD. "Step forward now, you
soldier, You've borne your burdens well. Walk Peacefully on Heaven's
Streets, You've done your time in Hell."

SAN BERNARDINO – His high school guidance counselor was surprised when Pfc. Alex Oceguera became a
soldier. Oceguera was in the Junior ROTC at Montclair High School but he never expressed any interest in an
Army career, counselor Joe Reynaga said. “I was kind of shocked to hear that he went into the military after
high school,” he said.
The 19-year-old San Bernardino native was killed when his vehicle struck a roadside bomb in Afghanistan on
Oct. 31. Two other soldiers also died in the blast.
Oceguera was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 32nd Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 10th
Mountain Division out of Fort Drum, N.Y.
Oceguera's moved from San Bernardino to Montclair when he was a child. He was a June 2005 graduate of
Montclair High School. Reynaga said Oceguera was an “average but hardworking student” who like practical
subjects such as auto shop and photography. “He was the nicest kid. He was always really polite,” Reynaga
said. “He was the type of person who was not very outspoken. But he had real manners. It was always, 'Yes, sir'
or 'No, sir.“'
Oceguera held the Army Commendation Medal, the Afghanistan Campaign Medal and the Combat Infantryman
He is survived by his parents and a sister.
