Olga at the Oktoberfest

Olga (left with large beer mug) at the Oktoberfest.  Olga can make friends with anybody.  Many were the times that she has taken the spouses on various excursions away from a battlefield visit.  These side trips usually involved excellent food and out-of-the-way shopping opportunities.  On the Fifth Field research trip to France in September 2012, she took the lead in numerous French villages and was so outgoing that at every stop, people were happy to help us find obscure crime scenes.
