Senior Director, Corporate Communications
In 1943, an 18-year-old Ben Gregg was drafted into the United States Army; before his enlistment, Ben’s life centered on family and the traditional Iñupiat cycle of seasonal activities. But World War II was raging around the globe and able-bodied young men were needed for the war effort. Ben, like other young men of his time, answered the call and served his country at a time of great peril.
He attended boot camp near Anchorage and then embarked on an eight hour train ride to Seward before being shipped out to the Aleutians where he would fight in what is sometimes called “the forgotten war”- the Aleutian Islands Campaign pitting U.S. and Canadian forces against an occupying Japanese force on Attu and Kiska islands.
