This award is given to an RCAF attorney each year and honors retired Major General Reginald C. Harmon, USAF, who previously served as Judge Advocate General of the United States Air Force . The annual winner is chosen based on accomplishments and contributions in support of the mission, leadership in contributing to civic, cultural, or professional activities in the military and civilian communities, external collaboration, and enrollment in off-duty professional self-improvement programs.
Major Hansen won this award for his work as a lawyer and his contributions to the leadership of the Air Force while serving military service at several installations around the world, including Europe, the Pacific Rim and in the United States.
His efforts helped his unit earn distinguished recognition as Major Command’s Legal Office of the Year. Major Hansen is a TRIALS instructor, where he leads junior attorneys in litigation procedures and tactics. Additionally, Major Hansen serves as CFO of two non-profit organizations, Emily’s Light Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and Afghanistan Allies Education Foundation; works as a volunteer for the defense of victims of domestic violence; and was recently a White House Fellowship National Finalist in Washington D.C.
