History 101 with Clem Tillion - Homer Alaska Podcast #14

I sit down with Clem Tillion for the first of two episodes with him. Clem is in his mid-90s, is a combat veteran of the WWII South Pacific Theater, a homesteader in Halibut Cove since the late 1940s, a nine-term state legislator, and a history buff. This episode we discuss his childhood, his time fighting in World War II, coming to Alaska, homesteading Halibut Cove, and his relationship with Jay Hammond and his wife Diana Tillion.

We also start the end of our "Alaska Property Bros" segment with the first of three parts with Marjolein Cardon discussing the value of working with Kachemak Group Real Estate vs For Sale By Owner and I discuss one thing I hate about shopping at Safeway.
