First lady Melania Trump landed Friday morning at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Anchorage for a jet refueling stop that coincided with a military celebration.
Melania Trump was on an Air Force jet from Beijing on her way back to Washington, D.C., after touring Asia with President Donald Trump.
She visited the Arctic Oasis Community Center — a gym, indoor playground, cafeteria, hair salon and more — on the base. She joined an event for families of active-duty members that included arts and crafts, stories and games.
Friday is the observed Veterans Day holiday, which falls on Saturday this year.
About 14,000 soldiers, airmen and civilian contractors operate out of the massive base. There are an additional 15,000 family members.
Some 1,800 service members from JBER are currently deployed around the globe. Most — 1,200 — are in Afghanistan.
