Being a veteran I found the Alaskan War Veterans Memorial to be very well presented. I thought it expressed native Alaskan war participation that we don't find in history books.

Such a tribute to our fighting men and women of the US Military. A small town with a military tribute makes it #1 in my book. Take time and read the displays. Nice monuments, makes you proud to be an American.

Very well done, reverent, informative memorial. We learned a lot about Alaska's contribution to US war efforts. Some very moving personal tributes at each branch of the service's memorial. Worth a stop for sure. Thank you to all of our service members... current and vets.
