Alaska Territorial Guard Wins!

Posted by Dr. Fay on December 16, 2009

By Tracey Porreca – Finding Myself in Alaska

While I am not pleased with some of the enormous and even reckless spending our government seems to be determined to push forward, I received via Facebook and Rep. Don Young’s site that H.R. 3326 has passed. The price tag for this is $636 billion, which is nothing to laugh at, but it secures several things in the area of defense, one of which is the status of the remaining Alaska Territorial Guard members.

As you may remember and have read in previous blog posts on this site (here and here)the Alaska Territorial Guard’s status has been in question and those who had received retirement benefits in the past were at risk for no longer receiving them. While still in office, Gov. Sarah Palin assured this group the State of Alaska would continue their benefits until the issue was resolved. With today’s vote, according to Rep. Young’s site, H.R. 3326 “Clarifies the military status of World War II Alaska Territorial Guardsmen as active service for the purposes of retirement.”

This is a very small portion of this bill and I for one am glad that those involved included language in this legislation that protects the benefits so deserved of these brave men.
