Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson

JBER is located in Anchorage, Alaska. Its mission is to support and defend U.S. interests in the Asia Pacific region and around the world by providing units who are ready for worldwide air power projection and a base that is capable of meeting the U.S. Pacific Command’s theater staging and throughput requirements. It is the home of the Headquarters, Alaskan Command (ALCOM), Alaskan NORAD Region (ANR), Joint Task Force-Alaska (JTF-AK), Eleventh Air Force (11 AF), the 673d Air Base Wing, the 3rd Wing, the 176th Wing and other tenant Units.

The Compatible Lands Foundation is working with JBER and surrounding landowners to protect training activities through land conservation. Among the lands to be protected are a large municipal recreation area as well as a camp facility owned by the Methodist Church.
