According to economists at the University of Alaska Anchorage, Alaska military spending generates more jobs and income in the state than almost any other industry. With more than 22,000 active duty military personnel and a mix of cutters, aircraft, boats, and intelligence systems, this sector is consistently expanding its presence and impacting the economy of our regions.

Join us to hear from our expert panel as they discuss their fleets and aircrafts, their growing workforce, and how they’ve protected the coastline across our region for more than 150 years.
