    HULMAN FIELD AIR NATIONAL GUARD BASE, Ind. (Apr. 7, 2018) — The Assistant Adjutant General for Air, Indiana National Guard, and Air Component Commander retired after nearly 38 years of military service April 7 at Hulman Field Air National Guard Base, Indiana.

    Brig. Gen. Jeffrey W. Hauser, who previously served as the commander of the 181st Intelligence Wing, began his military career as an enlisted weapons loader and rose up through the ranks before retiring.

    It has been a gift to our unit and our state to have a great and humble leader like Hauser, said Brig. Gen. L. Kip Clark, a former Racer and current Chief of Staff of the Indiana Air National Guard.

    You could see integrity, service and excellence in Hauser even before they were core values, said Col. Christopher Colbert, the commander of the 181st Mission Support Group.

    Hauser began his military career in April 1980, enlisting in the Indiana Air National Guard as a weapons loader. After graduating from the Academy of Military Science, he was commissioned as a second lieutenant in 1986.

    Hauser’s distinguished service with the 181st Fighter Wing and 181st Intelligence Wing included assignment as a weapons systems operator, instructor pilot, chief of plans, chief of standardization and evaluation, chief of safety, operations group commander, maintenance group commander, and wing commander. His aviation career includes more than 2,000 hours flying and instructing in the F-16, F-4, T-38, and T-37.

    “Thank you for 38 years,” said Hauser. “To all Airmen, thank you for what you do.”
