"Expressing support of Alaska Army National Guard soldiers deployed worldwide. "
"These fine soldiers deserve our appreciation and thanks."
- Rep. Weyhrauch
More than 250 Alaska Army National Guard soldiers are now on active duty, and are deployed throughout the world. These citizen soldiers, from all over Alaska are serving in overseas training deployments, combat missions, stability and support operations, as well as federal missions and the Partnership for Peace in Mongolia.
Alaskan Army National Guard members come from all walks of life. They are committed to serving their country in times of need; thus, they leave their families, friends and jobs in order to spend from six months to a year and a half completing their assigned missions.
These fine soldiers deserve our appreciation and thanks.
