American Legion honors firefighter in Oklahoma City

The Eugene Greer American Legion Post in Oklahoma City honored an Oklahoma City firefighter.
FROM STAFF REPORTS Published: December 7, 2013

Oklahoma City firefighter Maj. Kenneth Rolke was honored by the Eugene Greer American Legion Post No. 216 for his service to the community and to his fellow crew members.

Rolke works at Fire Station 22, and his battalion chief, Kirk Wright, was on hand for the presentation in November.

The post, which has begun a program of honoring first responders, was named for 2nd Lt. Cecil Eugene Greer, a pilot who was shot down on a mission in the European Theater during World War II.

The American Legion provides services to veterans of wars and conflicts, and serves the greater community through recognition efforts.
