CGS VP of Finance, Jeff Shirley, serves on the Armed Services YMCA of Alaska Board of Directors. He shared, “The Salute to the Military Gala is always my favorite event of the year – each year I’m in awe of the achievements and selflessness of the members of each branch of the military that are recognized for outstanding service – I always leave the night inspired!”

Each year, twelve exceptional enlisted service members, representing each of the Active Duty branches, the Guard, and Reserve, are recognized for their outstanding achievements. Additionally, the Armed Services YMCA of Alaska honors one Alaska Military Spouse of the year and the Bobby Alexander Civic Leader of the Year. Learn more about the honorees here.
