The state is moving ahead on development of a military veterans cemetery in Fairbanks.  The interior is home to more than 10 thousand veterans, most of who live in Fairbanks, but the closest military cemeteries are in Anchorage and Sitka. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, steps are being taken to change that.

Dan has been in public radio news in Alaska since 1993. He’s worked as a reporter, newscaster and talk show host at stations in McGrath, Valdez and Fairbanks. Dan’s experience includes coverage of a wide range of topics, from wolf control to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and dog mushing.
