Commander Tim Burley's Tribute to Past Post 96 and State Commander Roger K. Olson
Had the honor of attending Roger K. Olson's interment today. Brought back some memories of Roger that I felt I would share. Roger was a Korean War Veteran, a Dairy Farmer, and a mentor. I remember when I transferred to Hutchinson Legion Post 96 Roger made sure I had my Blue Cap for the next meeting. He forgot to tell me it cost $50, but that was Roger, we were members, we represented the Legion, and the cap was the uniform. He reminded me of my Grandfather, he knew what he wanted, how to get there, and he demanded excellence and achievement. He loved a good heated discussion and wasn't ashamed to tell you exactly how he felt about anything he believed in strongly. He is one of the reasons I am Commander of the Hutchinson Post today. He and many other great Leaders who have led the Hutchinson Post entrusted me to carry on their proud tradition, and I try to fill their boots daily. Roger always started a phone call with, Commander and ended every call with I will talk to you soon my friend. Commander was his way of showing respect from the start, My Friend, no matter whether we agreed or not, was his way of showing respect before we continued our mission for Veterans, Children, and our Community. To honor Roger K. Olson, the Hutchinson Children with Special Needs Christmas Party will now via Proclamation, be renamed the Roger K. Olson Children's Christmas Celebration. His dedication to this program, started by him and others, in 1989 will always be remembered. Roger, It was an honor to be your Student, a Friend, and a Brother. I salute you and the many who have given so much in the service of our country.
RIP Brother. Tim Burley - Commander - Post 96
