Thank you for your service is a common phrase heard by many Alaska veterans for their military service. Now some veterans and their families are saying thank you to a couple from Big Lake.
"I'm not trying to be a hero to anybody man, but that's the greatest thing that's ever happened to me and it wouldn't have happened if it wouldn't have been for Ron and Lynda," said Korean War veteran Jim Clark.
