ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Today Sand Lake community members and the Alaska Air National Guard re-dedicated a flag pole that once stood outside Kulis Air National Guard Base in Anchorage.
"When Kulis moved across town we decided that we needed to have something, that represented Kulis because it was such an important part of this part of town for 56 years," said Tastee Freez owner Rich Owens, who organized the ceremony.
The Alaska Air National guard moved from Kulis, it's home since 1955, to Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson earlier this year.
"It's a good home but its different from being in the community here in Sand Lake, we miss them," said Brigadier General Chuck Foster, former Wing Commander of the Alaska Air National Guard 167th Wing.
During the ceremony, the Dimond High School band played the national anthem and students from Sand Lake Elementary School led attendees in the pledge of allegiance.
The property that once houses now belongs to the State of Alaska Department of Transportation.
