Lucked out with 2 tours in Alaska. First at Ft Richardson for 3 years, during which I earned private, commercial, instrument and seaplane ratings. The flying club was the largest military flying club in the world. Got time in a lot of different aircraft. Built time flying people in and out of remote strips and lakes, on hunting trips. Second tour was at Ft Greely for 3 years. Bought a Citabria, and flew it everywhere - almost 1000 hours. Saw several STOL competitions, but never competed. Good times.
