Driven by the hope for new and better opportunities, Kimberly’s family soon discovered how difficult it is to adapt to a new lifestyle so far away from home.

The changing role of Alaska’s military

The state has unique training grounds and conditions, and that’s no small part of why it hosts the kind of large-scale exercises we’ve seen this summer.
