Alaska is now the front line of North America’s defense. The Alaska Defense Forum will provide local leaders with strategies they can use to build strong military-community partnerships and rally new defense community champions at the state and local level. It will also educate our statewide defense community stakeholders on the policy and budget issues impacting our state’s military installations.
