Northern Edge Cancelled

Another major military exercise has been cancelled. The Alaskan command announced this (Friday) morning that it will not hold Northern Edge 2013. The event, held every other year was scheduled for the last 2 weeks of June.  It’s the largest military training exercise in Alaska, spanning the entire state, and Gulf of Alaska. Alaska Command spokesperson Captain Tanya Bryan says the 2013 event fell victim to federal budget cuts.
