RMKS/1.  THIS NAVADMIN ANNOUNCES THE REQUIREMENTS AND SOLICITS 
APPLICATIONS FOR THE ALASKA SEA SERVICES SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM.  THE

DOLLAR WAR BOND AS A GIFT TO USS JUNEAU (CL 52) DURING WORLD WAR II.
AFTER THE SINKING OF USS JUNEAU, THIS GIFT WAS TO HAVE BEEN PRESENTED 
TO USS ALASKA (CB 1).  HOWEVER, USS ALASKA WAS DECOMMISSIONED BEFORE 
THE PURCHASE AND PRESENTATION.  CONSEQUENTLY, THE GOVERNOR OF THE 
TERRITORY OF ALASKA AND THE SECRETARY OF THE NAVY AGREED THAT THE BOND 
WOULD BE LEFT ON DEPOSIT IN THE FIRST NATIONAL BANK OF JUNEAU UNTIL USS 
ALASKA WAS RECOMMISSIONED OR ANOTHER APPROPRIATE APPLICATION OF THESE 
MONIES COULD BE MADE.  IN 1986, THE NAVY ESTABLISHED THE ALASKA SEA 
SERVICES SCHOLARSHIP FUND.
