General John Hyten '81 Named Commander, Air Force Space Command

Graduate of Harvard's Air Force ROTC Program

On 15 August 2014, General John E. Hyten received his 4th star and was assigned as Commander, Air Force Space Command, Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado. The Command includes more than 40,000 space and cyberspace professionals, at 134 locations worldwide. General Hyten is responsible for mission-ready space and cyberspace forces and capabilities, for the U.S. Strategic Command and North American Aerospace Command, and other combat commands around the world.

We were honored to have General Hyten as our speaker on Veterans Day 11/11/11, and he dedicated our new Medal Of Honor tablet in the sanctuary of Memorial Church. He recalled, with some humor, being a student in ROTC uniform in The Yard and Square in the late 70's. John attended Harvard College on an Air Force ROTC scholarship, and he was commissioned a second lieutenant the day before his graduation in 1981.

 We are very proud of our fellow Harvard Veteran, and wish him well as he pursues his vast mission, under the motto "If you're not in space, you're not in the race." 



We Welcome all Harvard Veterans join the Harvard Veterans Alumni Organization!

There is a proud history of military service to our country, and sacrifice, by more than 10 generations of the men and women of Harvard. This service ranges from King Philip's War in 1675, to many who are now on active duty throughout the world, and the more than 150 Veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan who are current students and fellows at Harvard University.

We join others at Harvard in recognition and appreciation of this ongoing commitment. As a President of Harvard once remarked, the men and women of Harvard in the United States Armed Forces "are doing something profoundly important...something that is very noble, and something that is crucial".

We invite all members of the Harvard Community - students, alumni, faculty and staff - who have served, or are serving, in the United States Military to join us in this "Long Crimson Line".
