Oh wow, where in Alaska? I lived on Kodiak for 5 years, Valdez for just shy of 5. My stepsons live in Anchorage and my son graduated from Juneau-Douglas High School. My ex-husband is a Coastie and our son is now a Coastie. He is an A school now and they asked about anyone wanting Alaska. All looked at him. He said no way, he was born there and with the exception of a few years at other locations he lived in Alaska almost all of his life. Time to see other places.
He got his first pick out of A school and he is going to the CGC Midgett out of Seattle. He still insists is likes rain and has moss in his veins. Born in Kodiak, high school in Juneau... that would be about right! LOL
