A great overview of Defense Secretary Mattis' visit to Alaska:

"Several hundred Soldiers, National Guardsmen up there (Fort Greely) defending the 300 million Americans, and they are very, very much aware of their job and the responsibilities they carry. It's a very sobering reminder for our adversaries that we are able to defend ourserves. It was a real good trip for the senator (Dan Sullivan) and I to see these people going through their drills and their constant state of readiness. It's also a reminder, if we need one, of Alaska's critical role in our nations's defense."
