As his service to our country clearly attests, he's earned his stripes and then some.
After a career that spanned nearly four decades, Palmerton native Lieutenant General Rhett A. Hernandez can finally call it a day.
That's because the United States Army recently held a Special Retirement Review in honor of Hernandez at Conmy Hall Joint Base Meyer-Henderson Hall, Va.
The event was hosted by Gen. James D. Thurman, Commander, United Nations Command-Combined Forces Command-U.S. Forces Korea.
