12 years ago, Bob Ulin and then Alaska National Guard Public Affairs Officer Major Michael Haller started a new quarterly publication call Warriors.  The purpose of the magazine was to serve as a means of highlighting the efforts and the activities that contribute to the proud history of the Alaska National Guard.

We cannot accomplish all that we need
to do without working together.

-Bill Richardson

The success of the Warriors publication was the result of many individuals from writers, graphic designers, and printers; but mostly we want to recognize all the members of the National Guard who proudly wear the uniform ready to respond when needed.

In those years, many employees of Quality Image Publishing had the honor of working with the Department of Military & Veterans Affairs and the Alaska National Guard from the premiere issue to this final issue.  We want to thank the DMVA and the National Guard for allowing us to help bring this publication to life each quarter for the past 12 years and letting us put together the final issue of this excellent publication.  While we will miss working with Kalei Rupp, managing editor, we wish her and everyone at DMVA and the National Guard Public Affairs Office the best in all their future endeavors.

DMVA will continue to use social media and online channels to bring news and events for all service personnel.  You can check them out at:
