On the rocky coast at the edge of the ice cap in northwest
Greenland sits Thule Air Base. I was stationed there as the base Telecommunicaitons Officer
from July 1967 to June 1968.|

I was assigned to 1983rd Communications Squadron (AFCS) from July
1967 to June 1968. The stories of my Thule AB and Greenland experiences described are from my memory and letters.
Pictures of Thule AB, Greenland landscape, Inuits, and ice cap
are from my Greenland scrap book.
All arctic weather statistics are from memory or are documented in official Air Force manuals, or newspapers and magazines
reporting on actual Greenland events. Contact with Inuits and Greenlanders was done through Thule AB or Danish offices and were
in accordance with Greenland rules. Fees paid for dogsled trips was in accordance with Greenland and Danish rules.
