Reflections for Sheriff Gus H. Jorgenson

My Great-Uncle Gus Jorgenson was killed fifteen years before I was born; I grew up hearing of his life and his death. A number of years ago, a volunteer in the Martin County Historical Society helped me to find the newspaper accounts in the Fairmont Sentinel. It was banner headlines for four days! He has always been a hero to me. God bless his memory--and greetings to my cousins.

Michael Lowe, grandson. like Honor, I never got to meet him. When the suspect was held up in
the shack, the National Guard was called, and they brought tear gas, which was fired into the shack,
and the suspect came out.

I never got to meet my grandfather but heard wonderful things about him. I will always admire his dedication to his duty and his family.
