ANCHORAGE, Alaska, Jan. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Thank You.

It's an expression of sincere gratitude that TriWest Healthcare Alliance is committed to saying over and over again to Alaska's military members and their families.

TriWest—which manages the military's TRICARE healthcare program for 21 western states, including Alaska—offers its thanks through supporting a variety of Alaska-based charitable organizations that aid the military community.

Helping Alaska's Military Community

TriWest's giving program aims to enhance the continuum of care provided to Alaska's more than 84,000 TRICARE-eligible Service members, National Guard and Reserve members, retirees and their families.

All told, TriWest supports more than 40 local programs, as well as national community partners that host events in Alaska.

"The men and women from Alaska have sacrificed a tremendous amount to defend the freedom of all Americans," said TriWest President and CEO David J. McIntyre, Jr. "It's our duty—and a true privilege—as their fellow citizens to honor that service and provide these courageous families with ongoing support."

TriWest Giving Overview

Following are some of the dozens of events TriWest has been proud to sponsor in Alaska. TriWest contributes funds toward the events and had company representatives on hand to discuss TRICARE benefits:
