I actually think that is appropriate for that area and those conditions. General welfare is a legitimate function of gooberment. It's only a week's worth of food (sorta food in re: MREs).

I hope they rotate the food, unlike the Civil Defense food from the 50's and 60's that just wasted.

Even when the 1960’s survival crackers were fresh they weren't much fit to eat. The canned water was even worse.

I guess the thinking was hungry people will eat anything.

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 caves around here used to be designated Civil Defense shelters and stocked with old MREs but those were all moved out decades ago and trashed 25 years ago. I don’t recall seeing a Civil Defense Shelter sign posted in years.
