Marines with Task Force Arctic Edge load onto a bus at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska during a movement as part of the Joint Force Land Component Command in support of exercise Arctic Edge 18. As the JFLCC for the exercise, U.S. Army Alaska is the headquarters responsible for command and control of all ground-based forces participating in the exercise. Arctic Edge 2018 is a biennial, large-scale, joint training exercise that prepares and tests the U.S. military’s ability to operate tactically in the extreme cold-weather conditions found in Arctic environments. Under the authority of the North American Aerospace Defense and U.S. Northern Command, more than 1500 participants from the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, and Navy will utilize the unique and expansive air and ground training areas in Alaska.

The objects in this collection are from The U.S. National Archives and Defense Visual Information Distribution Service. The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) was established in 1934 by President Franklin Roosevelt. NARA keeps those Federal records that are judged to have continuing value—about 2 to 5 percent of those generated in any given year. There are approximately 10 billion pages of textual records; 12 million maps, charts, and architectural and engineering drawings; 25 million still photographs and graphics; 24 million aerial photographs; 300,000 reels of motion picture film; 400,000 video and sound recordings; and 133 terabytes of electronic data. The Defense Visual Information Distribution Service provides a connection between world media and the American military personnel serving at home and abroad. All of these materials are preserved because they are important to the workings of Government, have long-term research worth, or provide information of value to citizens.
