Former Major General Michael Harrison retired from the United States Army in October of 2014. He does not consider this period of his life retirement; he prefers to say that he is in a Transition phase as he is prepares for service in another capacity. That being said, he holds a number of qualifications that should allow him to make a measurable contribution to society, preferably in service to others. What he does next is anybody’s guess, but it is sure to be something significant.
As a man who has held the rank of Former Major General Michael Harrison, he clearly has a resume of solid and unique credentials that will serve him well in whatever capacity he chooses to serve. While he has served in many roles, he enjoys mentoring, coaching, and training more than anything else. Over the years, he had the privilege of leading men and women at home and abroad, to include duty in Afghanistan. This is just part of the picture because there is so much that could be written about a thirty four year career.
He credits all of his successes to the hard work, sacrifice, and support of his Soldiers, family, friends, and superiors. Achievement in the service of your country is not a “chest thumping” matter Harrison has said; the business of serving is a Team sport.
