In 1958, as the "Cold War" between the former Soviet Union and the United States was escalating, the United States Air Force contracted eight young female musicians to entertain three thousand secluded men stationed at the most isolated American military base in the world, Thule Air Force Base, Greenland. Located inside the Arctic Circle, Thule Air Force Base lies only nine hundred forty seven miles from the North Pole. The base was built as a strategic component of the Ballistic Missile Early Warning System, composed of powerful radar systems stretching across Alaska, Canada and Greenland. The installations were constructed to detect long range bombers and ballistic missiles launched from the Soviet Union, over the Arctic region, into the Western hemisphere. Arriving at Thule, the "Girls" are ordered 'off limits' to all male personnel. Being constantly guarded by military police and confined to restricted minimal housing, the young women are demoralized and apprehensive. When the greatly outnumbered women realize they are not in danger from the "men" they are expected to entertain, the dissimilar musicians join forces determined to provide themselves with male companionship for the two month engagement at Thule. The pursuit and success of this unusual undertaking and the manner in which the girls achieve it, under extremely adverse circumstances, is the spirit of this story.Danger from deadly radiation, an Arctic blizzard, a Red Alert and other unpredictable challenging episodes and relationships, teach the young musicians much about themselves, each other and the men whose lives they share for a few short weeks in the land of the midnight sun. The story reveals how, with dedication to a 'meaningful cause', it's possible to overcome cultural, social and artistic musical differences. Comical episodes and treacherous Arctic adventures balance out the sum and substance of this work. "The Thule Girls" is fiction, fabricated from real life people experiences.
