I spent 1966 stationed on Shemya Island, Alaska, one of the Semichi islands, at the end of the Aleutian chain. The Semichis are so far from the Alaskan mainland that the International Date Line zigzags to keep them in the same day as the rest of the United States. Shemya is about 1500 miles from Anchorage and 200 miles from Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula.
