As the old adage says, “it takes a village” – and there are no truer words to describe the collaboration required to support and express America’s gratitude to service members and their families.
In Alaska, which boasts 27 military locations across 663,000 square miles (often at remote outposts that operate in extreme weather) meeting the needs of service members and their families is a full-time job for the dedicated employees of the USO Alaska team.
The small – but mighty – team of nine USO employees supports over 23,000 service members and their families, traveling far and wide to accomplish this mission. Whether staff members are catching a C-17 to fly out to Bethel, Alaska, or taking a two-day journey by land and sea to Cordova, Alaska, the team is ready to support service members and military families, no matter where their journey takes them in the state.
