In Fairbanks Alaska, Col. Mark Lowe now plans on retireing and remaining here after arriving in Fairbanks in 1983 in 45 degrees BELOW zero.
He remembers arriving in Fairbanks, Alaska and his car didn't have a block heater but a woman working at the hotel volunteered to keep his Ford Mustang running through the night so he could get a good night's sleep.
What folks will do for a loyal GI.
This hospitality drew him back in October as the deputy commander of U.S. Army Alaska after being stationed in Virginia for several years.
Lowe told the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner he plans to end his military career there. He's spent much of his time in special operations, and his career has taken him to nearly 90 countries.
Fairbanks welcomes those in training and those who wish to retire here. For all Fairbanks real estate contact Cameron Harter. His willingness to help those in need of any kind of housing is worth it's weight in gold.
