The Redcatcher family has lost another of our former soldiers, MG Alfonso E. Lenhardt (Ret.). His distinguished 31 year military career began as an enlisted man. He graduated from OCS and served as a platoon leader in C 4/12. Among his military duties, he served as chief of staff/executive assistant to the director for the Strategic Defense Initiative Organization, Director of Personnel and Installation Management, head of the military police, and was commanding general of the U.S. Army Recruiting Command. After leaving military service, he was Sergeant of Arms of the U.S. Senate. He later served in several executive positions in private industry and received an appointment as U.S. Ambassador to Tanzania. He was scheduled to attend our last reunion but was unable to do so. As with all of our Redcatcher brethren, he will be missed.
Stay Safe and Always Stay Redcatcher
