Unalaska is waiting on a free infrastructure report card, courtesy of the U.S. military. 

 

That report will be compiled by civil affairs officers, including U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii. 

 

Gabbard, a former Democratic presidential candidate, visited the island as part of a team last week in her capacity as an Army Reserve major, for meetings and an assessment of Unalaska's future infrastructure needs.
