On the 22nd anniversary of the attacks of 9/11, we hold Open Conversation to talk about the world since that fateful day. We also hear from those in uniform on September 11, 2001, and their memories of the day and those that followed.

Joining us with be special guests, Army veteran Michael Harris, President of military fraternity Mu Beta Phi, and COL Suellyn Novak (USAF, ret.), with the Alaska Veterans Museum in Anchorage.

Alaska’s military history comes alive at the Alaska Veterans Museum. Stories of the last shot of the Civil War, a silk nightgown made for a beloved wife, and stories of the Forgotten are watched over by our brave Eskimo Scout. The Alaska Veterans Museum commemorates the sacrifices our defenders have made and strives to educate and inspire our visitors to remember and honor those who made them. They tell stories of veterans’ service using their own oral histories and artifacts. We will spend some time with the exhibits and talking with Suellyn about Alaska’s rich military history.
