Stillwater Legion members in D.C.
American Legion members from Stillwater Jeff Olson, left, and Robert Hart, right, are shown with past Legion National Commander Dan Ludwig from Minnesota, during a recent visit to Washington, D.C., as part of a 35-member delegation from Minnesota and Wisconsin. Olson is a former state commissioner of Veterans Affairs and Hart is past chairman of the Legion’s state legislative delegation. The group spent four days in Washington, D.C., meeting with the state’s senators and representatives and discusses concerns about sequestration cuts that could harm the nation’s defense; making the transition from military to civilian jobs seamless and expressed support for a bill giving Congress the power to prevent physical desecration of the U.S. flag.
