Orlyn Oestereich lived the last 21 years of his life in Washington County and was well connected through his involvement in the American Legion. His wife Connie, said few people knew him by his first name, though. Instead, he was known as "The Colonel," a title of both endearment and respect. "I'm still having a difficult time. I depended on him for so much," Connie said. She and Orlyn met at Fort Detrick in Frederick, Md. Orlyn, who was serving as executive officer of the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases at the time, was her boss from 1967 to 1969, Connie said.
