Photo and Story courtesy of Sam McJunkin.
“My father, Samuel McJunkin, in 1951 after a forest fire fighting effort in the Cascade mountain range in Washington State. He worked for the Forest Service during the summers to help pay for college. He’s now 83 – still swings an axe – heats his house with wood. His name is Sam as well although he goes by Ted.
