Mr. Kent,
I recently found a photograph of you in my grandmother's (Cecelia Kent Jackson) photo album. She was a cousin of yours from Norfolk, Nebraska. She had made a comment that you were a brave young man whose life was lost trying to save another person's life. Even though I never knew you and all of your family in Nebraska that did know you have passed on I will keep your memory alive and the sacrifice you made to keep us safe.

You passed 78 years ago 12 years before I was born. I always wanted to be a Highway patrol Officer and I started my career in 1969. That was 66 years from when you were killed in the line of duty. God Bless you and always know that you will never be forgotten. You missed so much by passing so young. WWII, Korea and Viet Nam....I understand your love for being a Highway Patrol Officer. Semper Fi Officer Kent and someday we will meet and patrol the heavens together...

Rest In Peace.

The 74th anniversary of your tragic death was a few months ago. I'm sure the pain your loved ones feel is just as strong now as it was then. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of your friends and family. Thank you for your dedication and sacrifice. You will NEVER be forgotten and FOREVER be a hero. Until we meet, keep "walking a beat on the Golden Street" and look after your brothers and sisters on earth.
