John Hussey

Brig. Gen. John Hussey was recently named as the commander of the 75th Great Lakes Division. He is a U.S. Army Reserve officer with a Military Police/Civil Affairs background who commanded the 306th MP Battalion at the Abu Ghraib Prison in 2005 and was in charge of detention operations in Afghanistan as the Task Force Parwan commander under CJIATF 435. He has also earned four masters degrees to include a Master’s Degree in Strategic Studies from the United States Army War College.

Senior leaders within the US military often view detention operations as a supply problem rather than a challenging and continually changing dynamic with strategic level implications.
