John E. Hull

Lt. Gen. John E. Hull commanded the US Army, Pacific from 1948-1949. He served in both world wars and was a contemporary of Gen. George Marshall and Gen. Omar Bradley. Because of his primary role in planning Allied operations throughout World War II, he was credited with having more experience integrating strategy with overseas operations than any other Army officer.

Hull was a premedical student at the University of Miami in Oxford, Ohio, prior to joining the Army in 1917. He received an honorary LLD in 1954. His military education includes the Army War College and the National War College.

Prior to the US Army, Pacific, Hull was the Commanding General for Army Ground Forces in the Pacific. From 1953-1955 he was Commander in Chief of the Far East Command after the conclusion of the Korean War. This was his last major assignment before retiring on 30 April 1955.

Other significant assignments for Hull involved major staff duties in Washington, DC. Among these were Director of the Weapons Evaluation Group and Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations and Administration for the Office of the Secretary of Defense. At the outbreak of World War II he was assigned to the War Department.

Important decorations awarded to Gen. Hull include the Distinguished Service Medal, the Silver Star, the Legion of Merit, the World War I Victory Medal, the World War II Victory Medal, the Korean Service Medal, and the UN Service Medal. He died on 10 June 1975.
