It is with much regret I inform you all that Colonel Kent Olson, 6th Brigade, 1st Division, II Corps Army of Georgia passed away last Monday. His daughter Stacie Olson contacted Colonel James Foster yesterday to inform him of the news.

Kent joined the ACWGC back in May 2001. Although not that active in the mid years of his service due to (I believe) health issues he was back in the saddle from mid-2007. I knew Kent from my time as a fellow member of the AoG I Corps. - a gentleman and only too willing to help. Kent also served as the VMI Dean of Cadets, VMI in 2007.

You will be missed Suh! <SALUTE>

<SALUTE> KENT :cry:

My heart goes out to his family.
It was a pleasure to have had the privilege to have known him.

A great loss to the Army of Georgia and the Confederacy.

God bless Colonel Olson.

He has crossed over the river, and rests in the shade of the trees.

The loss of any of our members diminishes our club to some extent and Col. Olson appears to have been one of the good ones.

My heart goes out to Kent's family. I thank him for making our hobby better and it is sorrowful when one of our own is missing.
