General Carter Ham, Former Commander, United States Africa Command.
A Life in the Military
General (ret) Carter Ham
One of the very few enlisted men to rise through the ranks to Four-Star General, Carter Ham reflects on his nearly 40 year career in the US Army. General Ham retired in 2013 after serving as the Commander of United States Africa Command. Throughout his distinguished career the General held a wide range of leadership positions including: Commanding General of the US Army Europe, Director of Operations for the Joint Staff and Commander of the 1st Infantry Division. General Ham was at the forefront of many of the top issues the Pentagon faced in recent years and participated in combat operations in Iraq and oversaw America’s military engagement in Libya. In addition to advocating for treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), he was the military lead for the Department of Defense's review of the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy. General Ham will share his thoughts on these experiences and more.
