Tenakee hosts Alaska Native veterans

TENAKEE SPRINGS - Members of the Alaska Native Veterans Association were hosted by the community of Tenakee Springs last month, an event that was coordinated with the help of Rep. Cathy Muñoz, for a weekend of fishing and appreciation of the Veterans for their service to the United States. Local charter captains Tuck Harry and John Hamar donated their services and their ships to the day's activities, gladly welcoming aboard the vets with hot coffee and pastries.

The trip yielded a wide array of catches, each of the boats pulling in rockfish, snapper, cod, halibut and dungeness crab. Bubble-netting humpback whales, seals and porpoises all pulled together to put on a spectacle of shows for these veterans, many of whom had not been to Tenakee Springs for many years, some since even before their time in the military.
