HUNTSVILLE, AL--In an exclusive interview, Huntsville native and Air Force General John Hyten, the commander of the United States Strategic Command spoke to Redstone Alabama's Jeff Martin about growing up in the North Alabama city, what's ahead for STRATCOM, and the future of nuclear weapons.
General Hyten graduated from Huntsville's Grissom High School in 1977, and then went to Harvard, graduating in 1981 with a commission in the United States Air Force. He says that growing up in Huntsville inspired him to join the space program, and that the Air Force was a way to do it, adding that he "started that adventure in 1977, and I'm still going. So I think the Air Force got it's money worth." http://www.waaytv.com/redstone_alabama/exclusive-stratcom-commander-talks-about-growing-up-in-huntsville-and/article_b39fe90c-d5c1-11e6-b2dd-3bbb082567ae.html
