Fairbanks on Saturday

I continue to enjoy myself thoroughly in Fairbanks. At a welcoming reception last night for guests of the Lend-Lease memorial weekend, I had a fascinating conversation with a former transport pilot who supplied the Lend-Lease airstrips in Canada and Alaska. It was his first time back in the Great Land since he left in 1945. I just love hearing stories from World War II veterans.

I haven't been able to figure out a way to post the stories I'm filing but the News-Miner is doing a fine job covering the event.
