Everett W. Holstrom Class of 1934
Air Force, 20+ Years Everett W. (Brick) Holstrom was born at Cottage Grove, Ore., in 1916. He graduated from Pleasant Hill High School, Pleasant Hill, Ore., in 1934, and attended Oregon State College from that year and until he entered the military service at Fort Lewis, Wash., in December 1939. General Holstrom completed basic and advanced flying schools at Randolph and Kelly Air Force bases and was awarded the aeronautical rating of pilot upon graduation in 1940. Christmas Day in 1941 was an eventful one for Second Lieutenant Holstrom as well as the Army Air Corps for it was on this day that he had the opportunity of destroying the first enemy submarine off the west coast of the United States. The historic day of April 18, 1942, is also well remembered by the general for it was on that fateful day that he piloted a B-25 as a member of Jimmy Doolittle's raiders when the mainland of Japan was first bombed by U.S. aircraft. General Holstrom was forced to bail out in China, after dropping his payload on Tokyo. There, at Kunming, he assumed command of the 11th Bomb Squadron from early 1942 until the end of 1943. (There's much more.)
