Historic Hood River
Continuing with the Hood River News archives, here’s Hood River resident Ken Jernstedt from a 1999 issue of Panorama. I’m shocked to see I haven’t discussed Jernstedt on this site before– member of the Flying Tigers, Hood River mayor, state representative, state senator… you can read the linked bio for the details. It’s interesting his service wasn’t in the US military, as the US had not yet entered the war.
I had a nice discussion with his son several years ago. I wish I’d had a chance to speak with him directly, but this photo will have to do.
