Abstract:

Alaska is sixth among all states and territories in volume of personnel serving in Iraq and Afghanistan and is a very important component in America's missile defense system, which overall is 90 percent accurate because of robust testing and better technology. In addition, energy independence is critical if we are to have more flexibility both in our national defense and in dealing with international affairs.
