Salute to the Military
The Annual Salute to the Military started in the form of multiple Service Balls hosted by the local Navy League. In 1977, the Navy League, with the support of Senator Ted Stevens, worked with the Armed Services YMCA of Alaska to create one annual event to honor all service branches and promote community awareness of military performance and service.
