“Jack Armstrong, the All American Boy” was a popular radio adventure series in the mid1930s through the 1940s.
Jack Armstrong of Eagle Point has developed his own adventure series; not on radio but primarily in film. And it all happened by basically being in the right place at the right time. Keep in mind as you read this, that what he is doing started only this summer.
Armstrong retired from the Air Force in 1994. He worked for Erickson Air-Crane for six years, then joined Carson for nine years. And now he is employed by Croman.
He is the captain of the Jackson County Sheriff’s Posse and has grown up with horses, having been born in the blue-grass country of Kentucky.
But currently Anderson is recruiting horses and riders for movies and commercials. As an agent for a major production company. The company recently “robbed” a coach at Hanley Farms, and “robbed” the Beekman Bank in Jacksonville. Currently Anderson is recruiting for upcoming jobs after the first of the year.
Recruit day is Saturday, Nov. 21 starting at 9 a.m. at 4278 Beagle Road, at Snyder’s training facility. Anderson will hold auditions and evaluate applicants. He is looking for up to 30 riders with various skills.
Anderson is a member of the So. Oregon Film and TV group, Oregon Media Production Association, Portland and affiliated with the Jacksonville Motion Picture Commission.
He owns W.H.O.A., LLC (Western Horses of Oregon Association). For information, Armstrong can be reached at 890-3569.
