Having lived and grown up in Alaska, I would highly recommend that you take that assignment. Much like Germany and Hawaii, Alaska is a beautiful state with one of a kind scenery, fishing, hunting, camping, etc. It's only a couple years and I assure you that you will not forget your time there. Hopefully you're PCSing to JBER and not Ft Waynewright or Ft Greely. Anchorage is a fun town and I personally thing Fairbanks is a little too secluded for me. But Fairbanks has better Alaskan nature than Anchorage. Good luck LT. I hope you enjoy whichever assignment you end up landing.
