April 7, 2017 JUNEAU – Governor Bill Walker today released a statement praising the U.S. Army’s decision to keep the 4-25 Infantry Brigade Combat Team at Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson.
"I am very pleased to hear that the U.S. Army has decided to keep the 4-25 Infantry Brigade Combat Team (ABN) at Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson (JBER) into the future. Alaska has a unique and strategic geopolitical location, and the decision to keep those 5,000 soldiers at JBER is a powerful recognition of that fact.
