Alaska - America's Last Frontier
Alaska is the home of the 210th Air Rescue Squadron's pararescue team and many retired Pararescuemen. The 210th PJs are normally the worlds most busy PJ team. The majority of their missions are civilian search and rescue. Alaska's environment is stark, beautiful and can be unforgiving to those who are not prepared to contend with nature in the arctic. America's highest mountains, arctic climate, lack of roads and sparse population provide an opportunity for unparalleled adventure. It is this environment that draws active PJs and retired PJs to Alaska. It simply suits their chosen life style. This page and its links may provide you a better understanding of Alaska and the men and women who live there.

The below photographs were take during just before Christmas 2002 and depict the winter snowfall in my neighborhood. The temperatures X-Mas week ranged from the low teens to -10°F. The sun rises about 9:30 a.m. and sets about 3:30 p.m. Alaskan winters are cold and dark. This is one reason a state that is one third the size of the United States has a population of less than 500,000 citizens.
