Abstract : The study examines why the Army should consider increased use of Alaska in its positioning of troops and other military resources in the 70's. Supporting this contention is an examination of what President Nixon has announced as elements of his Doctrine for the 70's followed by an exposition of Alaska's unique capabilities in support of these elements. These capabilities result from Alaska's mid point location with respect to Europe and the Far East, its training potential, and its natural propinquity with the Army as a basis for increased, mutually beneficial cooperation.
