Last year, Alaskans faced some hard truths about alleged crimes in the Alaska National Guard. Under the previous administration, rapes, sexual assaults and fraud went unprosecuted and even uninvestigated as corrupt leaders protected perpetrators.
Many Alaskans, including me and other members of a group called Veterans for Accountability, spoke out against this corruption. Fortunately, Gov. Bill Walker’s administration and many legislators are listening to Alaskans’ calls for reform.
