During the summers of 2010 and 2011, the Kenaitze Indian Tribe work crew demolished Wildwood Air Force Station's Buildings 100 and 101. The project was made possible by the Native American Lands Environmental Mitigation Program and conducted through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers - Alaska District.
Unique federal program cleans tribal lands, creates jobs in Alaska
For nearly 40 years, Wildwood Air Force Station’s buildings 100 and 101 stood as abandoned relics of the Department of Defense. Now, the demolition of the facilities and other restorative projects on the same land are providing a local federally recognized native tribe with new opportunities.

Abu Shahriar, Local Government Engineering Department of Bangladesh district engineer for the Jessore District; and Col. Michael Brooks, commander of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers-Alaska District, pose for a picture in early October after examining one of eight recently constructed roads in Jessore, Bangladesh. The Alaska District, in collaboration with the U.S. Agency for International Development and the Local Government Engineering Department of Bangladesh, completed the roads in the first government-to-government agreement in the country. The roads are instrumental in helping local farmers get their crops to the market, children get to school easier and facilitating families’ access to medical clinics, thus increasing the quality of life for the people of the region.
