Celebrating Veteran's Day

January 17, 2020

Saint Mary's Catholic School

The month of November was filled with family stories of veterans who had served, or are currently serving, our country in various wars, including WWII, Vietnam, Korea, Desert Storm, and Iraq, among other deployments. Our home of Kodiak, Alaska is home to the largest United States Coast Guard Base and currently serves as host to the Navy Seal Cold Weather Training Center. We have many military families living among us and we include them in our prayers. Mr. Wood pictured here is a proud Alaska Native veteran who had served in the Airforce during the Korean War. One of our outlying villages, Ouzinkie, has the most individuals having served or currently serving per capita in the nation.
