LATHAM, NY -- The New York Army National Guard’s State Chaplain, (Lt. Col.) Eric Olsen (right) and Chaplain (Brig.Gen), Bryan Hult, Special Assistant to the Chief of Chaplains based at Arlington VA, view the Fallen Comrade Memorial Wall, during a visit to the New York National Guard’s Joint Forces Headquarters on March 28.
As the National Guard Bureau advisor to the Army Chief of Chaplains, Hult is the National Guard's top chaplain and routinely visits National Guard State headquarters to review programs, structure, and strength management and discuss issues affecting the chaplain corps.
“I am impressed with New York’s structure, organization and vision, from incorporating unit ministry teams and Air National Guard personnel and resources into programs to expanding the chaplain corps to meet the diverse needs of New York. New York is bringing it all together,” Hult said.
