The Most Isolated US Military Base Could Get A Lot More Important


Over 700 miles north of the Arctic Circle in Greenland sits one of the US's most isolated military installations — a place that could potentially become one of the most important American air bases on earth.

Situated close to the halfway point between Moscow and New York City, Thule Air Base is a remnant of the US's drive to create global staging areas for operations against the Soviet Union during the Cold War. At its height, Thule had close to 10,000 personnel from the US and Denmark. Today, that number is below 1,000.
