Historic Hood River
Veterans’ Day 2016
Our rail depot has been the portal to military service for many generations of Hood River men and women. While the depot no longer serves that purpose, this image is a good reminder of the thousands of emotional departures and reunions at that spot.
I wish we had a little more context here, but maybe we can figure out what is going on. These soldiers look to be WWI era, and they’re traveling with rifles and bedrolls.
