I remember the cans of water and the survival food packs we bought in the large square tin cans for our home fallout shelter. We also did weekend shelter drills at the local fallout shelters.
Whittier, Alaska is an unusual place with the large facility built there during the Cold War. The Hodge Building and the Buckner Building. They are both so out of place and unexpected. The area is an ice free port and usually covered by clouds that would have hid it from the prying eyes of Soviet aircraft. I’ve found very little information about what was planned for the base. Construction of the buildings was started in 1948 through 1953.
The Hodge building was converted to apartments and condos (this is the one billing in town where everyone lives) it is now “Begich Tower”! The Buckner building was abandoned after the 64 quake and today is an a spooky concrete shell.
