MG Robert "Bob" G.F. Lee, USA (Ret.)

former Adjutant General of Hawaii


Major General Robert G.F. Lee was appointed the Adjutant General, State of Hawaii, Department of Defense, on January 1, 2003 and served until January 8, 2011. In addition to commanding 5,500 soldiers and airmen, he served as the director of State Civil Defense (Emergency Management), heads Homeland Security for the State of Hawaii, provides direct support to the Office of Veterans Services, and mentored Hawaii’s at risk youths toward high school diplomas with the Youth Challenge Academy.

During his tenure as Adjutant General, he also served as a member of the Secretary of the Army’s Reserve Forces Policy Committee from January 2005 to January 2008. He was appointed by President George W. Bush for service on the Secretary of Defense’s Reserve Forces Policy Board from September 2007 to September 2010.

General Lee managed an operating budget of nearly $400M annually for the State Department of Defense of which $315M is allocated to the Army and Air National Guard and $85M funds Homeland Security, Civil Defense, Veterans Services, and Youth Challenge Academy. During his tenure, the Hawaii Air National Guard airlift squadron converted from C-130 medium airlift aircraft to new C-17 heavy lift airplanes, doubled the size of the KC-135 refueling squadron, and is currently transitioning from F-15 fighters to the new F-22 stealth fighters. Every operational unit in the Hawaii Air National Guard is a mix of Active Duty and National Guard airmen, the first State to achieve Total Force Integration in the US Air Force.

The Hawaii Army National Guard deployed to the Middle East in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom these past 8 years. Soldiers of the 29th Infantry Brigade Combat Team have twice deployed to Iraq and Chinook and Blackhawk aviation units have also deployed twice to Afghanistan and Iraq. Over 5000 soldiers and airmen in the Hawaii National Guard have deployed to the Middle East, yet the Hawaii Army National Guard is currently at 101% strength and the Hawaii Air National Guard is at 99% strength.

The Hawaii National Guard enhanced emergency preparedness to the State and Pacific with the certification of its Weapons of Mass Destruction Civil Support Team in 2003. This team is able to quickly analyze biological, chemical, and radiological hazards and determine the corrective actions required to mitigate the hazard. The Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and High-Yield Explosive Enhanced Response Force Package was certified in 2006 to medically treat victims of a mass casualty event; to decontaminate victims of a chemical or biological attack and to perform urban search and rescue in the event of an earthquake or other natural disasters. As the Homeland Security Advisor to Governor Lingle since the inception of the Department of Homeland Security in 2003, General Lee provided the leadership for Pacific territories such as Guam, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of Northern Marianas in disaster preparedness, response, and mitigation. The Hawaii Catastrophic Plan, developed in concert with FEMA Region IX in 2009, is now being replicated in these territories. General Lee understands the role of Defense Support to Civilian Authorities (DSCA) with the quick support to the Governor of American Samoa and FEMA during the earthquake and tsunami of September 2009 with Hawaii National Guard assets.
