Independence Day Wiki

Alex was an presidential aide who served under President Thomas Whitmore. He was killed during the first day of the War of 1996.


On July 2, 1996, Alex informed Whitmore of a phone call from Secretary of Defense Albert Nimziki, who in turn informed the President about the arrival of the aliens.

When David Levinson warned Whitmore of the aliens' hostile intentions, Alex remained at the White House while trying to evacuate the last people from the premises on the remaining helicopters. Unfortunately, Alex was too late to escape just as the City Destroyer destroyed the White House along with the last helicopter he was riding on.
