Rescue[edit]

This article is a little odd in that it discusses the search and rescue of the Lady Franklin expedition, but gives no informatio on why a rescue was required. What went wrong??

The rescue did require more than one attempt. There was a lot of media attention about the effort which included obtaining the necessary equipment. Perhaps, the rescue ought to be a sub-section after expansion of the section. jmswtlk (talk) 14:02, 24 March 2010 (UTC)

Fort Greely, AK[edit]

These two pages need to be tied together at Fort Greely, AK is named after Adolphus Greely.

...links to a dead link. perhaps this oone would suffice as a reference to the work? http://www.nytimes.com/books/00/02/20/reviews/000220.20huntfot.html Mang (talk) 15:27, 2 August 2013 (UTC)
