Sad To Hear about this

  Soldier killed by bear on Alaska base was parachute infantryman mauled near brown bear den

This story hits kinda close to home for me. My grandson is stationed at this base.

And he has been out in the country on a few occasions, for work, for training, and for recreation.

Nervous making it is.

  2. and without bear spray!

    1. The fish and game people had it but not the soldiers I guess.
