Calling All Sealaska Veterans
Tuesday, December 8, 2020

Alaska Natives serve at higher rates in the military than any other ethnic group in the country. We are proud of all veterans who have served in all branches of the United States uniformed services.

Are you are veteran of the United States uniformed services?

Please consider letting Sealaska know. We have added a new feature to MySealaska.com that allows shareholders to let us know if they are veteran. From time to time, Sealaska has important information for veterans regarding federal or state policy. We hope you consider letting us know if you are veteran. Simply click “YES – I am a veteran” when logged in to your MySealaska.com account. Those who voluntarily identify as a veteran will be eligible for cash prizes.

About Cash Prizes

To encourage participation, Sealaska is offering prizes to shareholders who voluntarily let us know they are a veteran. Sealaska directors and employees are not eligible.

Shareholders who self-identify by Dec. 18, 2020 will be automatically entered to win a $250 Early Bird cash prize, and shareholders who self-identify by Dec. 31, 2020 will be automatically entered to win one of four $100 cash prizes.

How Sealaska Supports Veterans

Sealaska, along with many other Alaska Native leaders, advocated for the Alaska Native Vietnam Era Veterans Land Allotment Act for many years. The act was signed into law in early 2019 and allows Alaska Native Vietnam-era veterans who missed the opportunity to apply for Native allotments because of active duty to apply for an Alaska Native Allotment. An eligible individual may apply for an allotment up to five years after the effective date of new regulations issued under the act. Learn more.

In the fall of 2018, Sealaska witnessed the raising and dedication of a totem pole honoring veterans and all branches of the U.S. military. The totem stands in the Veterans Memorial Totem Park in Klawock. U.S. Sen. Dan Sullivan, a member of both the Senate Armed Services and Veterans’ Affairs committees, was a guest speaker at the 2018 event. “Alaska has more veterans per capita than any other state in the country. Even more special in my view, Alaska Natives serve at higher rates in the military than any other ethnic group in the whole country,” he said.
