The Canadian Rangers would probably compare to the National Guard in the U.S. in many ways. The Rangers are under the department of National Defense and their main purpose is to patrol the Arctic and maintain an official Canadian presence in isolated areas for National Sovereignty. It's made up of local community members, and they only meet for a few days each year, so I joined last March. We did our training about 20 miles down river. The first picture is part of our group on the trail. Someone broke down on the hill. Next is the targets on our shooting range. We shot at 100 meters, and we all are issued an ancient British 303. Somehow I won the shooting competion and got the top shot medal. The yellow Twin Otter is the military plane out of Yellowknife that came in for the training.

   
   
Alecia Toews, from Calgary, Alberta answered the call for volunteers, and spent part of the winter here at Old Crow helping us. She was a blessing in many ways, and we want to say a big 'Thank You' for coming so far to help. Here Alecia is getting on the scheduled flight that comes into Old Crow six days a week, to fly back to Calgary, and back to college classes. She is a classmate of Joshua's fiancee, Chantal, but didn't know who she was until recently.
