Drove around this circle many time in 1960 to March 1963 while stationed here. Wife had a rear tire come off our Chevrolet wepons carrier car (which was surveyed as uneconomical to repair) one time and really tied up traffic for a while.
Great tour of duty tho. Lots of good memories.

Dr. Bill, The Original Totem as you see in the picture never had a SeaBee on it's top when we were there in 1960 to 1963. Maybe someone added it after that.
For everyones information I submit the following:
The Adak Totem
This Totem is the story of Adak.
The bottom figure is a monster from prehistoric times when the Aleutians probably were a land bridge to Asia. The Walrus symbolises the sea life from which the Aleuts gathered food, clothing and tools. The two-headed Emperor Goose represents an era when Imperial Russia ruled and exploited Alaska. The Blue Fox is characteristic of the time when only hunters and fishermen visited the island. Next is the Williwaw (pig) or the Wind Devil, whose actions have plagued every inhabitant. The Airplane represents the Armed Forces or Adak today.(when it was an active military base) This is taken from the base of the small 17" Totem we charish.
