ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Alaska officials are seeking input from veterans in a needs assessment project with the University of Alaska Anchorage.

Department of Military and Veterans Affairs officials say they are working with UAA’s Institute of Social and Economic Research to identify top issues for veterans through a survey.

Officials say the surveys were sent to 3,000 Alaska veterans and another 1,900 were sent to veteran posts for distribution.

The ISER survey is sponsored by the Alaska Office of Veterans Affairs. Officials say veterans’ identities will be confidential and used to generate reports.

Office of Veterans Affairs director Verdie Bowen says such a needs assessment has never been done by the state.
