No discussion of the militia movement in Michigan would be complete without including the inspirational militia figure, Mark Koernke. A maintenance worker at the University of Michigan, Koernke was one of the first individuals to publicly call for militia formation in the early and mid 1990s. Some even claim that it was Koernke who first inspired Olson 28 American Militias to form the Michigan Militia in 1994 (Karl 1995). As the militia movement flourished, Koernke frequently traveled around the country giving lectures to local groups on how to organize a militia and instructions about proper paramilitary training.

But Olson was firm. ‘We dare not go underground, because then we lose our legitimacy. People become suspicious of that which they cannot see’” (Karl 1995: 45; see also Bennett 1995; Churchill 2001; Dammann 1994; Dees and Corcoran 1996; Downes and Foster 1994; Hamilton 1996; Hawkins 1994; Karl 1995; McQuaid 1995; Schneider 1994; Seul 1997; Stern 1996). During the latter half of 1994 and the beginning of 1995 the group continued with its public activities. The militia organized itself into a military style entity with a centralized officer based command and “uniformed brigades of citizen soldiers” (Karl 1995: 51).

Matters seemed to change for the better though as Gordon Dean was unanimously elected the State Commander of the rebellious faction, in May 2001, after all of the other candidates stepped aside in his favor. One of Dean’s first actions was to announce that Norm Olson had rejoined the group and had agreed to serve as his senior advisor. Any hope for a resurgence of the group, however, quickly fizzled as Van Huizen and Wayne continued to operate on their own. Furthermore, Olson’s participation proved to be short-lived indeed.
