LISTEN to Russ Jenkins on Hometown Heroes
90-year-old Russ Jenkins of Hollister, CA appears on episode #393 of Hometown Heroes, debuting November 14, 2015. A native of Okemah, OK, Jenkins spent 20 years in the U.S. Navy, beginning as a 17-year-old during World War II.
A taste of Jenkins’ musical ability on the guitar and the harmonica should be enough to prove that 90 is just a number for a man who still fits into his Navy uniform. There’s a very powerful reason this nonagenarian remains so engaged, active, and committing to serving others, and you’ll hear him explain that sentiment before we’re done.
