Still time left to support the 2018 Army Emergency Relief Fund annual campaign.

The 2018 Army Emergency Relief (AER) Fund campaign is still underway at Fort Wainwright. AER is a nonprofit organization founded in 1942 that provides no-interest loans, a grant, or a combination of both to service members experiencing financial hardships. In 2017 alone, one in 15 Soldiers received AER Assistance, but AER relies on donations from other service members, veterans, and civilians. AER provides a fiscally responsible alternative to high-interest, predatory loans without the stigma of asking for help by allowing Soldiers to work directly with the Fort Wainwright AER Office.

For more information or to make a donation to support the Soldiers of Fort Wainwright please contact the 1-25 SBCT AER Coordinator SFC Nelson at kevin.a.nelson42.mil@mail.mil

Or contact the Fort Wainwright AER Office directly at (907) 353-7453.

Stykers Gear Up for Deployment

Even in ice and snow, the soldiers at Fort Wainwright are always ready for the call.

Need somewhere to watch the Patriots and the Eagles duke it out in the midwest? Sojourn over to the USO and kick your feet up whilst chowing down on free subs. Win Win. Unless the Pats win. The it's kind of a 50/50 thing.

Yesterday was a big day for 1st Battalion 5th Infantry Regiment and 1st Battalion, 24th Infantry Regiment as they both ran through a simulated deployment to Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson. The Bobcats loaded C-17 aircraft and the Legion loaded out at the railhead to move their formations south. #ArcticThrust is an exercise that tests and validates the Arctic Wolves capability to move entire battalions on short notice.

Arctic Thrust Stryker and SUSV Transport

Soldiers load a Stryker, a small unit support vehicle and other supplies onto a C-17 Globemaster from Joint Base Lewis McChord, Wash., for transport from Eielsen Air Force Base to Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in support of Arctic Thrust, a U.S. Army Alaska deployment readiness exercise. Arctic Thrust includes the movement of two battalion-sized task forces from Fort Wainwright to Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson to test the strategic infrastructure and military and civilian systems and procedures required to rapidly deploy from Alaska. Dozens of Soldiers, Airmen, and civilians from both inside and outside the state are providing support to facilitate the exercise. #arcticwarriors, 1/25 SBCT "Arctic Wolves", #ArcticThrust

Arctic Wolves- pay attention to how much you drink and when it's no longer safe to drive. You can bet your 1SG won't buy the line of you only having one drink at the bar tonight if you get pulled over and cited. Stay safe, and happy weekend!

Arctic Wolves! The daylight gets shorter and shorter, but don't let that stop you from getting out with Wainwright MWR and Outdoor Rec. Ice fishing at Birch Lake is a great time and it all starts with a simple phone call.

Wolves Den: Fort Wainwright, Alaska's Premier Dining Facility has won the Commanding Generals Best Mess Award! Kudos to the team there and congratulations!
