GoFundMe Fundraiser To Honor Captain Alexi Whitney, USMC

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017


Steven Arango started a GoFundMe page to fund a bust to honor Captain George “Alexi” Whitney, USMC. Captain Whitney graduated from Bates College, cum laude, and then served in the 3rd Marine Reconnaissance Battalion in Anbar, Iraq in 2005. He later joined the CIA, continuing his service. In December 2016, Captain Whitney was killed in action while serving in the CIA during an operation in Afghanistan.

The bust would be created by Colonel Lee Busby, USMC (Ret.), who has sculpted numerous service members who have been killed in action in Afghanistan and Iraq. His work can be seen in the following video.
