Camp Wy Wuh - Annette Island, Alaska - Marines return home after Operation Alaskan Road - Marine Wing Support Squadron 171 departed Operation Alaskan Road Sept. 12 after a two and a half week deployment on Annette Island.

The Marines were participating in a joint military and community based project, which was started in 1998 in hopes to construct a 14.5-mile, two-lane gravel road that would be a part of a transportation link between the Metlakatlan and Ketchikan road systems. Travel from the Annette Island road system to the Revilla Island road system will be completed by ferry.

During their stay in Alaska, MWSS-171 joined the ranks of Joint Forces Engineer Component Command in its endeavor to complete the road by its projected date of 2007. - Read more...
