Military PCS Relocation - Eielson Air Force Base Alaska

Welcome to North Pole, Alaska; the home of Santa Claus and Eielson Air Force Base. The 354th Fighter Wing is the host unit at Eielson and supports operations, maintenance, and medical functions of the Pacific. Eielson is also home to Alaska's Air National Guard 168th Refueling Wing, the 353rd Combat Training Squadron, Arctic Survival School, Detachment 1, 210th Rescue Squadron, Detachment 632 OSI and Detachment 460, the Air Force Technical Applications Center.

Located 26 miles southeast of Fairbanks (9 miles southeast of North Pole), Eielson began life as a Satellite of Ladd Field, currently Fort Wainwright Army Post. Construction began in 1943 with the completion of two runways, each 6,625 feet long. Closed temporarily at the end of World War II, the base was reopened in 1946. Eielson's first operation unit, the 57th Fighter Group, consisted of P38 Lightenings, P51 Mustangs, and P80's, the first jet fighter used by the United States. The 354th currently flies the F16 'Viper.'

As a community we are proud to have two military instillations in our hometown. We take great pride in welcoming the men and women who serve at Eielson Air Force Base and Fort Wainwright into the Fairbanks community. We're proud of your service and honored to have you call Fairbanks home.

Kathy & Jesse:  GREAT information--I love your posts!  This one, in particular, caught my eye--I was born in a military family (USAF) and my brother flies F-16s (went to the USAFA) and is an instructor at Seymour Johnson AFB here in NC.

Silly question, but, hey it's valid. I'd like to know. Is there a Pole at the North Pole? Is it wrapped like a candy cane or barber shop pole? Any kind of monument there? I'd google it, but I'm tired. I figure if anybody would know, you guys would.

Frank Rubi Louisiana Real Estate-Homes for Sale : Hi, Frank: I would say we're a speck different than you guys down in Cajun country, at least with respect to prices.  We actually have family not too far from you in Natchez.  Been a while since we were there though.

Debe Maxwell: Hi, Debe: Excellent.  We're a military family as well.  Dad was Navy and Kathy was AF many moons ago. :)  Thanks for stoppping by. 

Elizabeth Weintraub, Sacramento Real Estate Broker: Hi, Elizabeth:  Actually all the new street ligths are shaped and 'wrapped' to look like candy canes. Oh, and yes, there is a north pole at the North Pole. (Click to enlarge) :)

You mean there really IS a North Pole?  'Just kidding!  I don't remember listing this base in the military directory - Will you double-check, and if it's not there post the info for me where I can find it (NOT email!).  Thanks!  And great information for the transferee.
