Mayor Richard Boss Declares April 8, 2016 Stephen DuBois Day in Alamogordo, New Mexico

April 8, 2016

Many citizens gathered to honor Stephen "Doc" DuBois on his 95th birthday, April 8, 2016 at the Alamogordo City Hall where Mayor Richard Boss read a proclamation officially declaring this day to be Alamogordo Stephen DuBois Day.

"Doc" as he is affectionately known by all is a Pearl Harbor survivor as well as a veteran of several conflicts in the military. He lives with his daughter, Stephanie DuBois, in Tularosa, New Mexico where they maintain a dog grooming business, are on the Board of Directors of the Red Brick School House project, and are dedicated Democrats, attending many if not most of the Democratic Party of Otero County meetings in Alamogordo. He has been a member of the State Central Committee for the State of New Mexico's Democratic Party for years. Doc has also volunteered his time, talents and expertise to the Health Clinic in Tularosa, the Planning and Zoning Committee for both Otero County and Tularosa and was instrumental in bringing the VA Clinic to the community. He is a lifetime member of the VFW and the Marine Corps League.

Stephen DuBois Day was a grand affair and he seemed to thoroughly enjoy the whole event. Mayor Boss said he thought the entire country should honor him and we certainly concur.
