1.   Shemya’s   1st   PMEL   was   established   on   the   2x4   square-mile   island   in   Alaska’s   Western Aleutians   in   1975.   Ten   individuals,   along   with   1,090   others   from   various   career   fields,   were the   sole   occupants   of   Shemya,   AK …along   with   hundreds   of   native   Blue   Fox.   This   was   an isolated    1-year    tour    of    duty.    The    Shemya    Metrology    crew    initially    operated        using    a Transportable   Field   Calibration   Unit   (TFCU)…a   lab   contained   in   suitcases…out   of   what   was a    remaining    WWII    shack    along    the    main    road    from    the    barracks    to    the    flight    line.                                                                      [G.
