Bill Walker on Homeland Security
Thank our military and law enforcement for their sacrifice
I want to thank all the men and women in the military and in law enforcement who put their lives at risk every day to protect us. On May 1st, Sergeant Patrick Scott Johnson and Trooper Gabriel Rich were killed in the line of duty in Tanana.
Our thoughts and prayers are with their families and those families of other law enforcement officers and servicemen and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
To our military and law enforcement families: I speak for all Alaskans and say thank you for the sacrifices you make daily for us.
Your fathers, your husbands, your mothers and daughters--these are the heroes who protect our freedoms and keep us safe. These are the gallant and the brave who help us all sleep a little better at night.

Friend & strong advocate for our veterans & their families
All of our veterans, whether WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan and many other actions, put their lives on the line for all of us. The freedoms we enjoy today have been purchased by the blood of our servicemen and women, and we do not take any of
that for granted.
Our administration will be a friend to and strong advocate for our veterans and their families and strive for better access to and improvement of the services provided to these heroes and heroines.
