Robert J. “Max” Maxwell enlisted in the Navy in 1951 and served until 1955. When the Vietnam War broke out, he immediately joined the Naval Reserves and served more than 30 years. He currently serves on the Mid-Columbia Veterans Memorial Committee, Wasco County Veterans Advisory Committee, is a member of the VFW and American Legion and volunteers at the Wasco County Veterans Service Office and the Columbia Gorge Veterans Museum.

Hats off from all of us at Gorge Country Media
