Arctic Thunder

Extreme Long Shot - Arctic Thunder

Arctic Thunder is Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson's open house. Historically, Arctic Thunder has been the largest two-day event in Alaska.

Every two years, the base hosts Arctic Thunder to demonstrate its appreciation to the Alaska community for its support of the military, to educate the public about Army and Air Force missions, and to recruit people interested in joining the service.

Arctic Thunder open house is scheduled for July 26-27 2014.
