A special thanks to all our hometown heroes!


by Your Alaska Link News Team

Hometown hero Specialist Kraig Terbush is a specialist of the 4th platoon assigned to Delta Company, 3rd Battalion, 509th Parachute Infantry Regiment (Airborne).

Enlisted at 18, he's served his country as an infantryman, with one deployment to Afghanistan under his belt.

As a driver and gunner serving in a combat role, he was exposed to levels of responsibility and trust that few 20-year-olds could fathom. While deployed, he created bonds with his fellow soldiers that he says will "remain with [him] for the rest of [his] life".

When he's not serving our country, Spc. Turbush says he likes to enjoy what Alaska has to offer by snowboarding, traveling, and spending time with friends.

A special thank you to specialist Kraig Terbush for all his hard work and dedication to our country.
