Easter dinner with a Wounded Warrior

Easter dinner with a Wounded Warrior

Another Easter has come and gone. Some of us had the opportunity to spend the holiday season going to church services and then a grand dinner with friends and family. However, this is hard to do if you are a wounded warrior and living in Alaska when the rest of your family is thousands of miles away. Although JBER provides holiday dinners at the chow hall, it is somewhat problematic for bandaged soldiers and those using crutches or walkers on the ice.

Ruth Glacier is a magical place

Ruth Glacier is a magical place

This week I’d like to take you on an excursion to a glacier theatre...a theatre of eternal ice...a theatre surrounded by dizzying, snow-encrusted peaks, sheer granite walls, a restless theatre of echos, rumbling avalanches; a pensive, brooding theater of silence...a theatre where time suspends itself into an endless beginning.
