The Alaska National Guard (AKNG) continues to set the standard in meeting federal, state and community missions. Since September 11th, we have mobilized and deployed more Soldiers and Airmen than at any time since World War II. Our Soldiers have answered the call to serve our nation in the Global War on Terrorism and to support Alaska's citizens during civil support and disaster relief operations. These great men and women have earned a well deserved reputation for excellence.
Since the days pre-dating the formation of the Alaska Territorial Guard Alaskan's from all walks of life across our State have served with pride and distinction. 907 Pride is our call to action. The pride in our State evident in our Soldiers and Airmen is plainly apparent when one considers the personal sacrifices they make on a daily basis. When called to action these men and women distinguish themselves in their honorable service placing others above themselves. They may be your father, mother, brother, sister, son or daughter, your neighbor, your friend. Regardless of how you may know them they are set apart and are ready and willing to react to the needs of our State and Nation.
It is my great pleasure to present to you, the citizens of Alaska, the best trained and motivated group of Alaskans ready to serve, assist and protect you at any time.
Alaskans serving Alaska!
