JUNEAU - Celebration Juneau and the Navy League are looking for volunteers to take a sailor home this weekend when the USS Juneau comes to port.
The Juneau, a Navy amphibious transport ship, is visiting the capital to help mark the state's 50th anniversary before heading to San Diego to be decommissioned. The ship will be in Juneau from Saturday to July 30.
Volunteers are asked to help make the officers and crew feel welcome. Volunteers can offer to take a sailor out to lunch or dinner, or invite one on a hike or a trip to the Mendenhall Glacier. It's up to the volunteer.
If interested in volunteering, contact Janice Holst at 586-1462 and firstname.lastname@example.org.
