We make sure our Families are resilient and “ready to stay” when their loved ones are deployed in harm’s way.  Please take the time to become familiar with all the programs available here to care for our children, support our Families and further your education.   Alaska’s extreme climate demands an outstanding level of health care to keep USARAK Soldiers and Families Arctic Tough.
