Chief Warrant Officer Five Christopher Hall, son of Bailey and Daisie Hall Jr., of Suffolk, was named in January 2013 as the Senior Signal Warrant Officer Advisor (USAR) at the United States Signal Center of Excellence, Fort Gordon, Ga.
Hall’s new position will focus on the management of strategic and tactical network systems as well as integration of associated personnel for those communication systems. CW5 Hall’s most recent assignment was as the Deputy Commandant United States Army Reserve, Warrant Officer Career College Fort Rucker, Ala., with the responsibility of improving Warrant Officer education and training for the Army.
Hall credited his mentor Milt Rawles, also of Suffolk and a graduate of John F. Kennedy High School, who often told him there is no substitute for hard work. Hall said watching Rawles move up through the ranks within State Farm Insurance Company motivated him to work even harder in the military because of Rawles’ dedication and character.
Hall joined the Army in 1983 and is a graduate of John F. Kennedy High School. He is a lifetime member of the U.S. Army Warrant Officer Association, Reserve Officer Association, Golden Key National Honor Society, Phi Theta Kappa National Honor Society and The Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc., also holding membership in the Ancient Free and Accepted Masons Inc.
