JUNEAU - The Juneau Assembly unanimously approved a resolution last week supporting this country's armed forces and their families.
The resolution expresses the Assembly's appreciation for the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard and National Guard as they secure and protect freedom around the world.
And it thanks family members who have loved ones stationed near the Persian Gulf and elsewhere.
"The Assembly and the people of Juneau have great pride in the members of the Armed Forces and strongly support them," the resolution says.
Assembly member Merrill Sanford, who served with Marines in the Vietnam War, read the resolution into the record.
