Amchitka history:

The Naval Air Facility, Amchitka, Alaska, was established on 24 February 1943.

There is no longer a community on Amchitka Island, Alaska. There has not been a community there for over 50 years. All of the island is a National Refuge. It was an active military base in the second world war and has served as a radar station and White Alice site. All installations are abandoned and, except for some historic buildings and some to be used by the USFWS for special use will be destroyed. DOE has some radiation work to finish in the next few years, COAE has some work, and so does the Navy. See historical events for some previous history of the area.
