For 16 years, Al Olson, veteran of the Air Force, has been a dedicated AmeriCorps Senior RSVP volunteer.  Since 2006, he has been transporting veterans to medical appointments in Helena, Billings, Bozeman, and Sheridan, Wyoming as well as to Sturgis, South Dakota. For the past 8 years, he has also served as the Volunteer Coordinator for the Disable American Vets vans in Miles City, a volunteer duty he continued while he, himself was receiving cancer treatment.

For the past six years, in addition to the many trips Al takes each month with veterans, he has also served on the RSVP Advisory Council, always willing to support any RSVP activities, Al’s service with veterans often leads to other activities, such as providing ‘loans’ of money to veterans to buy a meal, for which he may, or not, be repaid.
