Airmen and families on Eielson got to talk to the comedians, take a picture and receive an autograph.

Airman First Class Reid Roman says it was nerve wracking to meet them: "Because I'm big fans of both of them, I didn't want to freeze up in front of them, but I don't know... it was really cool seeing people that I grew up watching. I know Seth from Family Guy and Austin Powers films. I even told Jeff he's my favorite roaster of all time, so I thought it was pretty cool to meet them."

Green and Ross are also visiting Kodiak and Anchorage on their tour of Alaska.
