Officer Olsen,
On today, the 93rd anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Army in Europe as a member of the 33rd “Golden Cross” Division fighting the Germans during World War I.
