Sadly we have been Requested to Stand in Honor for J. David Olsson  SCPO US Navy, EMS and Firefighter.

And retired from the Navy  in 1978, as a senior chief from the Navy.

 

He was employed at Foxwoods in their EMS department (MPEMS) for many years. In his 50’s he proudly became a paramedic after many years of providing care as an EMT and an EMS instructor. After the dissolvement of MPEMS, he continued his career at American Ambulance in Norwich.  He provided 50 years of service and dedication in the emergency medical services. On May 18, 2015, he received a state citation and a Distinguished Achievement Award from the State of Connecticut Department of Public Health for his decades of service.

Of note, this Hero was a good friend of Lt. Col Joe Danao (RET) and currently Director of Projects and Operations at the CT VA.
