There was no dupe. Mine is just the BMEWS site. Yours is the whole AFB. I was just cross referencing the two so someone seeing one would see the other.

I've flown through Thule, it's pretty inhospitable. I'd hate to have been stationed there, though I suppose in the summer months there's outdoors things to do. Winter is beyond unpleasant, and there’s not much to do except drink…

Read books, watch movies, work out, videogames, draw, paint, write... i can think of a lot of things one can do to better themselves while stationed at some remote outpost, things better than destroying your liver.
