In recognition of Alaska Native people who bravely served our country during World War II, in 2000, Alaska Territorial Guard (ATG) members were granted veteran status.
An ATG task force has been assembled and is searching for ATG members in order to provide them with honorable service records, including an honorable discharge.
To receive all the benefits and rewards entitled to them, the task force is committed to finding and assisting these veterans, their families, dependents and survivors. Its goal is to locate 100 percent of the ATG members, begin correcting the oversights of the past and allow future generations to access their ancestors’ service records.
