Quote from Corvette Guy
, Alaska is about one mile east of Fairbanks.The Army assumed command of this post in 1961 from the Air Force. The post was first established in 1940 as an Army Air Field, then later designated Ladd Air Force Base.
The military units on this post are; 1st Battalion, 17th Infantry; 4th Battalion, 9th Infantry; 172nd Infantry Brigade; 11th Field Artillery Battalion; 4th Battalion, 123rd Aviation; Cold Regions Research & Engineering Laboratory; Bassett Army Community Hospital
Did you check out the website?
Oh yes, I scoured the website. I see that Bassett Army Hospital has a med/surg ward with only about 20 beds, an ER, a Women's health center. While I have no clue right now were new nurse graduates would be allowed initial assignment, Alaska has been a long time hope, (over 20 years), right up there with my nursing ambitions.
In my application that went in today I listed my base preferences as
Basett army hospital, FT WW AK
Brook Army Medical Cener, FT Sam Houston TX
Walter Reed Army Medical Center Washington DC
I can hardly wait to find out, (edited to add, if I get my age waiver and if I am accepted!)
