Mayor Dan Sullivan’s Statement on the Elmendorf Tragedy
As Mayor of Anchorage, I wish to express my heartfelt condolences to the
families of the four airmen who died tragically last night in a plane crash at
Elmendorf Air Force Base. Tragedies such as these cause us to pause and
reflect, and it is my hope that the people of Anchorage, including military
personnel, can unite and find strength during the days and months ahead.
Anchorage is blessed with a vibrant military presence, and I'm sure I speak for all
citizens when I say that our thoughts and prayers are with the friends and
families of those who died, as well as our entire military community.
