At least it wasn’t for Kimberly Mejía Gúzman and her family, who moved from Guatemala, in Central America, to Anchorage, about one year ago.

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. But recently announced reductions in Army personnel at Joint-Base Elmendorf-Richardson in the years ahead, as well as a growing focus on the Pacific theater are complicating Alaska’s place in the military.
