  • Longest Serving Colonel Leaves Aviation Legacy

    Dec 16, 2009

    REDSTONE ARSENAL, ALa. -- The Army's longest serving colonel - and possibly its longest serving Soldier - said his "goodbyes" to a career of challenges and opportunities at a retirement ceremony Dec. 4 in Bob Jones Auditorium. Col. Richard Hatch, who completed 40 years, eight months and 22 days of service with nearly nine years as a colonel, said retirement was a fleeting thought during the latter years of a career that included stints as an enlisted Soldier, a chief warrant officer and an officer with five command assignments. Since July 2008, Hatch has served as the director of aviation maintenance transformation for the Aviation and Missile Command. "I've thoroughly enjoyed this career," said the 57-year-old Soldier. "Every time an opportunity has come up it has been a challenge, it has been interesting. The leadership obviously had confidence that I could do the job. The Army had a way of giving me challenges and extremely self-fulfilling assignments. This is a very unique culture. It is a profession of arms, a special group of people who serve in the U.S. military." It's now family opportunities - including a wife who wants to travel and four grandchildren who he wants to spend time with - that are leading to Hatch's retirement.
