Puyallup Pack 274 flag flies near South Pole

Recommended Posts



Lt. Colonel Brandon Tellez been an active adult volunteer with the Scouts and serves as the Committee Chair of Pack 274 and as the Bear Den Leader.

...Phoenix Airfield replaced the aging Pegasus Field when environmental conditions rendered Pegasus Field unfit to support the C-17 which can weigh as much as 490,000 pounds when fully loaded when it lands on ice.  The area at Pegasus Field was melting because of environmental warming.  Not a good location for landing an aircraft loaded with people, equipment, and supplies."

The flag traveled more than 19,000 miles from McChord Field to McMurdo station and back.

Great story of how this all happened at source:
