“YOURS FOR WESTERN ALASKA”

(907) 443-5221

‘Dear Friend of KNOM…’ (November 2019)

“Thank you for your service,” is commonly used today to recognize the sacrifice of our nation’s troops. It acknowledges the commitment to serve, often unconditionally and at great personal cost to a greater good. Their sacrifice is made worthy with a larger long term view.

KNOM recognizes this service in a spot series and features with current and former military. Western Alaska is home for many, many veterans, who we honor this month. What’s more, the region is bereft with a multitude of others who serve their communities without a uniform, by providing for elders, working for justice and healing, housing, educating, and advocating for long term improvements in Western Alaska.

Jesus said, “Not My will, but Yours be done,” the ultimate humble service. Thank you for helping KNOM express sincere thanksgiving.
