In this Saturday, May 25 photo, military veterans from Freedom Alliance are greeted at the Sitka airport by local fire and police personnel as they start a week of adventure at Vonnie’s Charters and Halibut Point Lodge. Often overlooked in conflicts that occur thousands of miles away on continents most people see just on social media, are the military veterans who return to their non-service lives with traumas both visible and unseen. A local fishing charter business, working with a veteran support organization called Freedom Alliance, has been reaching out to these veterans over the past several years, giving them a taste of all that Alaska has to offer.
