The Alaskan Scout And Alaskan Command - The Big Picture

National Archives and Records Administration ARC Identifier 2569522 / Local Identifier 111-TV-252 Big Picture: The Alaskan Scout and Alaskan Command Department of Defense. Department of the Army. Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations. U.S. Army Audiovisual Center. (ca. 1974 - 05/15/1984). A century ago, Alaska, our most northern frontier, was popularly called "Seward's Folly." The top of the world seemed remote then. Today, the polar concept has changed our ideas of distances and now that which was once considered a wasteland, is of great military importance and a vital link in our preparations to insure security. The mission of our Army in Alaska is to repel any aggressive action, and be prepared to hit back. An important segment of our force which is fulfilling that purpose, are men who were born above the Arctic Circle -- the Alaskan Scouts. They, along with the rest of our military establishment, undergo constant training and reevaluation in this land where nature herself is hostile -- Alaska.
