Patrick Anderson has wanted to be his own boss since he was a youngster growing up in Kodiak. At just 27 years old, he has already realized his dream.
Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak crews opened up a seasonal aviation support facility on May 1 in Cordova to prepare for summer fisheries. The alternate facility helps reduce the response time to the Gulf of Alaska in anticipation of increased maritime activity in summer. Air Station Kodiak has other seasonal locations throughout the state, including Kotzebue and Cold Bay.
