Wednesday we celebrated and honored the life of LTG “Hank”, Jr, by naming AFSC’s Shirlington third floor conference room after him. We are honored to have named the conference room after one of the esteemed past members of AFSC’s Board of Directors in recognition of his many contributions to not only AFSC, but also to Soldiers and their family members, the U.S. Army, and to our Nation.
LTG Doctor was born and raised in Oakley, South Carolina and earned a BS in Agriculture from South Carolina State University and his M.A. from Georgia State University. He held the distinction of being the highest-ranking South Carolina State University military alumnus. He was a graduate of the United States Army War College and the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College.
During his 35 year military career he held many prestigious positions including Chief of Staff, U.S. Army Material Development and Readiness Command, Commanding General of the 2nd Infantry Division in Korea and ultimately as the Inspector General of the United States Army, The Pentagon, Washington D.C.
He was appointed as a Director on the AFSC Board of Directors in June 2000 and served with honor and distinction until his passing. He was buried with full military honors at Arlington National Cemetery. He was so well thought of in his home state that in 2009 the South Carolina Department of Transportation named a five-mile stretch of Highway 52 The “Lieutenant General Henry Doctor Jr. Memorial Highway”.
LTG Doctor once said that his philosophy on life was based on three basic principles: faith, commitment and education. Undaunted by the tense racial climate of the 1960s, Doctor steadily climbed ranks to become the Army's Inspector General. As the Inspector General, he reported to the Secretary of the Army and other senior military officials, giving evaluations in troop readiness and morale.
Retired Army General and former Secretary of State, Colin Powell spoke at General Doctor’s memorial service and described how General Doctor was a role model to him and other black junior officers coming into the Army at that time. Lieutenant General Stanley Green, the then current Inspector General of the Army, offered how General Doctor loved his country, loved his soldiers, loved his family and placed the bar for performance as a soldier and officer so high, that it demanded others to always perform at their best. Family members remembered him at his memorial services saying that he had a genuine spirit and love for people.

This time of year, we are reminded of how acts of selflessness—however great or small—can make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate and enrich the world around us.
