Secretary Shinseki Visits Alaska


by Jessica Slider


(June 01, 2001) – On his way back from visiting Veterans and local officials in Guam and Hawaii last week, Secretary Shinseki made a few stops in Alaska over Memorial Day weekend.  His itinerary included the cities of Bethel and Anchorage, along with the village of Kwigillingok.

Because VA is committed to providing the best services available to Veterans in rural areas, this trip was an important one for Secretary Shinseki to take.  As he told the Anchorage Daily News:

Alaska has the highest concentration of veterans in the country, with 17 percent of the state population identified as such. Some 77,000 veterans live in Alaska.
