This Arline Moore portrait of Marshall Pineo dates to 1912. We met his brother H.D. Pineo here.
Sadly Marshall Pineo was killed in World War I, shortly after arriving in France. Apparently he was killed in the bombing of a hospital.
You can read about it here, as well as Hood River's preparations for the 1918 solar eclipse.
Don't forget tomorrow is Veterans' Day. It's about more than mattress sales.

Yes, he was serving in the Canadian military corp as hje wa Canadian by birth, having been born in Berwick, Nova Scotia.
Full name was Marhall Wilder Pineo. He had one sister, Margaret.
He is buried in the Etaploes Military Cemetery in France.
His father, Dr. Pineo was a naturalized citizen and he also served in WWI.
Talk about high top button shoes....

I really love and appreciate our veterans but I really hate war. To many young people like Marshall never return home. Not even to be buried.

as we commemorate the 100th anniversary of WW 1, the great war was a lot of horrific events that really changed our world including the forestry industry in the PNW, 4Ls and all. we have a WW 1 Oregon Spruce Division exhibit up at the Oregon Rail Heritage Center describing the efforts to get spruce to Europe where they "knew how to build aeroplanes".

Straight grained spruce-up to where they were full of big limbs-had to be of high value in those days. When logging in Alaska, used to run across big spruce stumps close enough to salt water that they could be fallen directly into the water. From there they were towed to sawmills and lumber used for airplanes.
