41. Lt. General Philip Kensinger, Jr. (Ret) - Chief Operating Officer, Oak Grove Technologies
Edited on Mon Aug-06-07 08:18 PM by troubleinwinter
Kensinger seems to be more than "a consultant". He is CEO for a company with CIA, DOJ, DIA & NSA as clients and "contract vehicles feature pre-negotiated terms and conditions to support programs within the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security".

Lt. General Philip Kensinger, Jr. (Ret) - Chief Operating Officer

Lt. Gen. Kensinger, the former commander of the U.S. Army Special Operations Command, has over 36 years of service in the Army. Kensinger's military service began June 1966 when he reported to West Point as a seventeen-year-old cadet. His assignments included tours with the 3rd Armor Division, 3rd, 5th and 7th Special Forces Groups (Airborne) and the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault).

His general officer assignments included: commander, Special Operations Command Central; deputy commanding general and chief of staff, U.S. Army Special Operations Command; and commanding general, U.S. Army South.

Kensinger's awards and decorations include the Distinguished Service Medal, the Defense Superior Service Medal, the Legion of Merit, the Defense Meritorious Service Medal, the Meritorious Service Medal, the Joint Service Commendation Medal, the Army Commendation Medal, the Joint Service Achievement Medal, the Army Achievement Medal, the Army Aviator Badge, the Army Staff Identification Badge, the Combat Infantryman Badge, the Expert Infantryman Badge, the Master Parachutist Badge, the Military Free Fall Parachutist Badge, the Special Operations Diver Badge, the Pathfinder Badge, the Air Assault Badge, the Ranger Tab and the Special Forces Tab.

His military career ended with USASOC after being in command for 40 of the 50 months since Sept. 11. During Kensinger's command, USASOC transformed into a 21st Century fighting force the Army is now replicating.

Lt. Gen. Kensinger resides in North Carolina with his wife Greta.
