I've written about her HERE and HERE and now her Alma Mater is inducting her into their Hall of Fame:
WAR REPORTER ALEX QUADE (’92) REGARDED AS A FEARLESS HERO BY MILITARY AND JOURNALISM PEERS
She has produced nearly a dozen documentaries and special video series’ about her experiences embedded with every branch of the military and covering the aftermath of natural disasters. Her latest documentary “Chinook Down” was announced in Times Square, New York City and earned her a second National Murrow Award.
Alex Quade (B.A., 1992) has been covering war zones and hostile environments for 15 years and is the only reporter to have embedded long-term with U.S. Special Operations Forces on combat missions downrange without a crew.
I honestly don't know how she does it. She's probably got more time in combat than most soldiers I know, she's been wounded in battle, and for journalists like herself there is little or no honor or glory, no chestfuls of ribbons, insurance is hard to come by and they certainly don't do if for the pay.
Alex Quade is a friend of Special Forces. She walks The Walk.
