Historical Spotlight: The Alaska Territorial Guard

June 3, 2017by Media

During World War II, the Alaska Territorial Guard (ATG), also known as the Eskimo Scouts, held an important role in defending United States soil from foreign invasion. The ATG was organized in 1942 and was comprised of more than 6,000 Alaska Native volunteers from across the state. In the year 2000, ATG service people were granted U.S. veteran status.

BSNC honors American Veterans who have sacrificed to serve our country. We remember the many Alaska Native service members from our region who volunteered in the ATG to serve our country by defending our shores during World War II, those who fought on foreign soil and those who continue to serve today in the armed forces.
