Along with the rest of the nation, Alaska's electors will meet on Monday, December 15 and cast their electoral votes.

The electors represent the political party of the Presidential candidate who won the popular vote in Alaska. For 2008 that is the Alaska Republican Party.

KYUK Documentary

Uncle Sam's Men tells the story of the men and women who served in the Tundra Army of Alaska's Territorial Guard during WWII. Over 6,000 Alaskans volunteered for the Territorial Guard. More than half were Alaskan Natives, predominantly Yup'ik and Inupiaq Eskimos.

The role these citizen soldiers played in defending Alaska's western and arctic coasts from the threat of Japanese invasion is remembered through the recollections of Tundra Army veterans, rare film footage and photographs of the Tundra Army in action.

This documentary was produced in 1995 by public television station KYUK in Bethel.
