Title: Lieutenant Colonel
Company: United States Army
Location: Columbus, Georgia, United States
Alvin Hodges, Lieutenant Colonel at United States Army, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Military for dedication, achievements, and leadership in combat and lifesaving skills with the United States Army.
While growing up in a low-income area, Lt. Col. Hodges realized that the United States Army was the best place to succeed in his future goals and accomplishments, and he served for nearly three decades while stationed in Fort Benning, Fort Knox, Fort Riley and Fort Stewart and participated in Operation Desert Storm in Iraq, where he earned such awards as the Combat Action Medal, the Bronze Star Medal and the Global War on Terrorism Medal. His life-saving skills, learned in combat training, helped him save a civilian’s life from heat stroke.
Following obtaining a Bachelor of Science in history from the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, Lt. Col. Hodges subsequently earned a Master of Science in criminal justice and corrections from Troy University in Troy, Alabama in 1989 and has also completed coursework towards a Doctor of Philosophy at Walden University in Minneapolis. He considers receiving his ROTC scholarship, which led Lt. Col. Hodges to a life in military service, to be the greatest highlight of his life. When he became a lieutenant colonel, he was also very proud because less than seven percent of hopefuls ever reach the rank. Currently, Lt. Col. Hodges is working on a potential memoir concerning his service with the U.S. Army, and hopes to set an inspirational example for a younger generation.
