Commemorating the Battle of Attu

May 2018 marks the 75th anniversary of the battles of Attu. The Service and partners are commemorating the Battle of Attu, World War II in the Aleutians, and the sacrifices of the Alaska Native Unangax^ people. Attu has gone full circle from national wildlife refuge before the war, to battlefield, and now it's back to birds - providing wildlife habitat as part of Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge. Working together to heal the land, fish and wildlife; veterans, survivors, and descendants can heal by connecting to nature and families can heal by telling their stories.
