My British husband (who believes in strong guns laws) has lived and worked in the Bush for decades and has no problem associating with men with small arsenals. In any case re marine transport you might try those companies which ship here, Crowley comes to mind but there are others (Matson, Young??). I imagine even the cruise liners may be possibilities. As climate changes rapidly up here, shipping will undoubtedly increase.

To the gentleman from Greece: You do not need to be a US citizen to be an officer in AK. You must be pursuing citizenship (in some jurisdictions). Each region has their own force; many Bush locations also have VSPO who have different requirements, and then there are state troopers.

You can be a VSPO in Alaska if you're a resident alien, but I don't think that situation is common at all, and these aren't jobs that a guy from Greece can just apply for. Don't know why they'd want to anyway. Poor sots can't even carry a weapon to protect themselves.

They started sending VPSO's to the State Trooper academy in Sitka. That's a change from the traditional VPSO academy. Even then they can't carry a firearm back in their home villages.
