They perform seven unique missions and are a critical player in maintaining peaceful relations with Russia. The Alaska Air National Guard stands prepared with combat-ready, adaptable Alaskan citizen-airmen to respond to the Governor of Alaska for state emergencies or the call of the President in times of crisis.
