USAG Alaska Operation Connection: Sponsor Soldiers, Strengthen Our Community

Make a difference in the lives of our Service Members during the holiday season by supporting our Service Members and their Families!

By inviting a pair of Soldiers into your life, you are showing how much they mean to our community. It's the simplest of gestures that sometimes mean the most.

Single Soldiers and Soldiers with Families are welcome to apply! You will not be turned down based on your status. Since some Soldiers are shy and some are outgoing, we've paired Soldiers together, and each duo of Soldiers will be paired with a Host, whether that be an individual or a family. Have a preference? Let us know so that we can ensure your time is well spent.
