Military support and Tanana
By Maj. Gen. Thomas H. Katkus

To the Editor:
The State of Alaska and the communities of Fairbanks and North
Pole should join me in thanking Rep. Mike Kelly and Governor
Sean Parnell for supporting the rail bridge over the Tanana River.
This bridge is the first step in completing our rail connection
to Fort Greely and to Canada. More importantly, it provides
dependable year-round access to the Joint Pacific Alaska Range
Complex. This training area is one of the largest in the country.
Reliable access provides an exceptional opportunity to all branches
of our military to exercise and train in a realistic and challenging
environment without public disruption.
The Alaska Military Force Advocacy and Structure Team made this
project their number one recommendation in its short-term strategic
plan. It holds tremendous economic benefit to the Interior as
well as the unparalleled combined training opportunities for
our great men and women serving in uniform.
Thank you for your continued support of the military both at
home and while deployed.
Maj. Gen. Thomas H. Katkus
Alaska Military Force Advocacy and Structure Team, Chair
