Rick Olson passed away due to Cancer today. From Eric Harris : For those of you who were at CRC in 1982-83, TACP Rick Olson has succumbed to cancer. He left on his own terms and refused further treatment and only took palliative care. Rick played a mean guitar and the CRC NCO club and like we others, was run off the icy Korean winter roads by the fabled "blue kimchi truck." He got out after four and went on with a life in music and now rests in peace.
