Historic Hood River
For this Memorial Day we have another Alva Day view of the Hood River men returning from the Great War in February, 1919. The sign on the last car says “Btry C”. Mixed in the crowd appears to be a marching band, and newspaper accounts said local apples were provided for the soldiers on the train.
Since the traditional local gatherings have been canceled this Memorial Day, I hope we can all take a moment to privately reflect on the sacrifices of those who serve.
