Spotlight on ... Danny Hall
February 26, 2013
As a retired veteran, Danny Hall enjoys supporting Soldiers and the warfighter through his love for contracting and holds a great respect for the men and women who serve this nation.
Hall is a senior contract administrator and contracting officer for the MICC-Fort Knox Contract Management Division in Kentucky where among the highly visible, diverse customer base, he's primarily responsible for supporting the garrison command and managing their higher profile service contracts and job order contracts.
"I enjoy the challenges associated with contracting and also enjoy my place of employment along with the people I work with," Hall said.
The MICC-Fort Knox Contract Management Division is annually responsible for more than $500 million of contracts that either support Soldiers directly or support those who provide services to Soldiers, such as the garrison.
"I see every day how those contracts I'm responsible for support the Soldier in their jobs and also provide for the welfare and quality of life for them and their family," he said. "We also support the Warrior Transition Battalion, which is a reminder of the sacrifices our Soldiers are making."
Hall retired from the Air Force, where he also served as a contract administrator and contracting officer. While on active duty, he spent time in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates supporting Desert Storm. He still possesses a willingness to be in the fight out of uniform.
"When the call came for volunteers to deploy, I was eager to do my part supporting our Soldiers in harm's way," Hall said.
He has deployed twice since 2009, including a year from April 2009 to April 2010 in Iraq and six months in early 2012 as an administrative contracting officer for the Defense Contract Management Agency Northern Afghanistan.
"My wife always supported me in my decision to deploy, and I received tremendous support from the people I work for and with at MICC-Fort Knox," he said. "Besides having to pull extra duty while I was away, they also kept in contact with me and sent generous care packages. I work with a great group of people."
Hall and his wife of 34 years, Ginger, live in Ekron, Ky., a small community near Fort Knox. They have a daughter and son who have both graduated from college. He fills his spare time traveling with his family and touring the roadways with friends by motorcycle. Besides the back roads of Kentucky, he has also toured the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Rockies, Yellowstone and Canada.
