The Military and Coast Guard in Alaska:
Measuring the Impact, Strengthening the Connections

Wednesday, January 20, 2021



The military and Coast Guard have long played an important role in Alaska’s economy and civil society. This program will feature findings from recent research by the University of Alaska Center for Economic Development as part of the Alaska Defense Industry Resilience Initiative – an ongoing assessment of the impacts and connections between the Alaska economy and the military and Coast Guard. We’ll also hear from the commanders of the Alaska Command – the unified command of military operations in and around Alaska as well as District 17 of the U.S. Coast Guard.


  • Nolan Klouda, Executive Director – UA Center for Economic Development
  • Lt. General David Krumm – ALCOM – Alaska Command
  • Rear Admiral Matthew Bell – District 17 Commander U.S. Coast Guard
