ANCHORAGE, Alaska— Alaska USA honored members of Alaska’s armed forces, including 12 recipients of the Service Person of the Year award and the Military Spouse of the Year, at Alaska USA’s 26th Annual Military Appreciation Breakfast in Anchorage.
Due to COVID-19, this year’s event was held outside the Historic Anchorage Hotel in a curbside pickup style. Honorees received an appreciation basket filled with breakfast goods and appreciation videos.
Though the breakfast was held in a different setting it didn’t hinder Alaska USA from reflecting on its military roots and celebrating 26 years of partnership.
“This is an event that Alaska USA looks forward to every year, so we were glad that we were still able to recognize the award winners in a COVID-19 friendly manner,” said Geoff Lundfelt, President and CEO, Alaska USA. “It’s truly an honor to be able to give back in some small way to those who have sacrificed so much for our country.”
The Service Person of the Year honorees were nominated by their supervisors and underwent 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.
The military breakfast takes place in conjunction with the Armed Services YMCA Alaska (ASYMCA) annual Salute to the Military event.
