I heard about Attu Island, the westernmost Alaska Island that had its residents kidnapped by the Japanese in the 1940s. The survivors were unable to return. There was a LORAN station but it closed several years ago.

Here's a hypothetical question: Say a very wealthy man decided he wanted to repopulate Attu with himself and his brothers and sisters. Would they be able to buy land in Attu, or would the federal and/or state governments try to block the purchase? Who owns the former village area in Attu?
