    He is headed way far south to Sitka AK to start his airman program. He has chosen AST. Four months at Sitka then to North Carolina.

    He has been up there since March 08. In his off time he was able to hunt, fish, snowboard and go ATV'ing. He had done none of that until he was stationed up there. He loved every minute it, but is ready to move on in his career.

    Does anyone know about Ketchikan, Alaska? My son is heading there. It was his first choice and is really excited.

    We were stationed in Ketchikan, Alaska and I have lived in Kodiak, Alaska too.
    Ketchikan is in southeast Alaska, very beautiful...very rainy! Oh my goodness do they get the rain! Approximately 16 miles of road to drive on...I used to work for Alaska Airlines and I had to take a ferry to work because the airport is on Gravina Island..its about a 5 to 10 min ride across. (Remember the political hot issue a few years ago regarding the Bridge to Nowhwere??) Thats exactly where its at. Ketchikan is relatively quiet in the winter but when spring time hits....cruise ships galore are in town so downtown gets quite crowded. The base is small as most of them are. There is a small exchange, small gym, a very nice club called The Crow's Nest... a nice galley and barracks for the single guys and gals. Married CG families live on the economy. When we were there it was hard to find a house to live in.
    Theres great fishing...beautiful scenery. The Tongass National Forest is there...beautiful.
    Ketchikan is approximately 650 air miles from Seattle, WA....about a 90 min plane ride...
    ask away if you have any questions.

    Thanks Susan! Well here are some questions:

    Tell me about the amount of daylight and how you cope with the long dark days?

    How long does the Acushnet stay out at one time?

    Do the Coasties interact with the town people?

    If we were to go visit would there be housing available through the CG or hotels on the island?

    Can you pick up a cruise ship once you are there to see the rest of ALaska? (if we went to visit)
    What is the earliest time in spring to visit? latest in fall?

    How long were you there? What was the hardest part? best?

    Where are you now?
