Michael T. Hall
Mike is the Executive Director of Three Rangers Foundation. He brings over 40 years of executive planning, administration, communications and program experience to the Foundation. He also adds a solid perspective to the Foundation from all aspects of military life. As a retired Command Sergeant Major (CSM) and a decorated combat veteran with over 34 years of service to the US Army and Special Operations, Mike has decades of experience relating to special operations, counter-insurgencies, and asymmetrical warfare. His skillset was acquired over the gambit from the National Command Authority through the Private soldier on the ground over the last four decades.
“The Best Soldier I have ever known,” is how General (Retired) Stanley McChrystal describes Mike. He served over 20 years with the 75th Ranger Regiment; he is the only soldier to have held the senior enlisted position at the Ranger Regiment, the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) and the United States Army Special Operations Command (USASOC). He retired from active duty in 2008 after 32 years of service. In 2009, he was recalled from retirement, to serve as the CSM and Senior Enlisted Advisor for the International Security Assistance Force North Atlantic Treaty Organization, Afghanistan/United States Forces Afghanistan (ISAF). This force consisted of over 130,000 Soldiers from 46 countries, during the most dramatic change in strategy and troop increase in the history of the war.
After retirement from the Army, he took this experience and applied it to coaching and mentoring executives at a diverse collection of commercial organizations, to include: Lockheed Martin, The McChrystal Group, as an independent consultant, and as Chief of Staff, North American Sales, the Scotts Miracle-Gro Company. Mike contributed to significantly improving culture, communication, transparency, strategic planning, and operational effectiveness of each of these Corporations.
Overall, Mike has over 40 years of executive planning, administration, communications, and program experience to include being the senior advisor to over a dozen General Officers and Chief Executive Officers.
Mike’s passion for helping veteran’s transition to successful civilian life led him to the Foundation. The Foundation’s focus, mission, vision, and dedicated team is the perfect combination, presenting the right opportunity to give back. Given a chance, Rangers can and will prove to that living the Ranger Creed, is a way of life and a path, that will, “set the example for others to follow.” At Three Rangers Foundation, we view this as a way of life, setting the example for others to follow, and attaining our mission of helping our Veterans.
