Alaska USA honors Alaska’s military with 24th annual military appreciation breakfast

Anchorage, Alaska – Alaska USA honored members of Alaska’s armed forces, including 11 recipients of the Service Person of the Year award and the Military Spouse of the Year, at Alaska USA’s 24th annual Military Appreciation Breakfast in Anchorage.

The Service Person of the Year honorees, nominated by their supervisors, undergo a panel interview. These exceptional enlisted service members, representing each of the active-duty branches of the Guard and Reserve, were recognized and awarded for their outstanding achievements. 

Guests included the command teams of the 11 honorees, as well as representatives from the offices of Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Sen. Dan Sullivan and Rep. Don Young. Alaska USA President and CEO Geoff Lundfelt, along with other Alaska USA officials and members of Alaska USA senior management team were on hand to recognize the awardees. 

“Alaska USA was founded with its roots in the military and those roots have always been a huge part of our organization,” said Geoff Lundfelt, president and CEO, Alaska USA. “The Military Appreciation Breakfast is a small token of our appreciation and recognition for what they do for Alaska USA and the country as a whole.”

The Military Breakfast takes place in conjunction with the Armed Services YMCA (ASYMCA) annual Salute to the Military event.
