HONOLULU – Gov. David Ige has appointed Col. Stephen F. Logan as deputy adjutant general for the State of Hawaiʻi Department of Defense effective Dec. 6, 2019. He replaces Brig. Gen. Kenneth S. Hara, who assumes the position of adjutant general for the State of Hawaiʻi Department of Defense on the same date.
Col. Logan has served as the chief of staff of the Hawai‘i Army National Guard since Mar. 2017. Previously, he served as commander for the 29th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, commander of the 103rd Troop Command, and as the state Army aviation officer for more than a decade, flying and managing both fixed and rotary wing aircraft. Logan is also a 22-year veteran of the Honolulu Police Department, retiring in 2004 as a patrol watch commander at the rank of Metropolitan Police Lieutenant.
Logan served in key positions during his deployment to Afghanistan, working closely with Afghan National Police and Security Forces. In addition, Logan has served on several state missions in support of local authorities – most recently as the deputy commander of Joint Task Force 5-0 in support of the Kīlauea volcanic eruption and Hurricane Lane responses in 2018.
He earned a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from Chaminade University and a Master of Strategic Studies from the U.S. Army War College.
Logan is married to the former Darcie N. Imose, and they have two children.
"I selected Col. Logan based on his experience and integrity. He has also previously worked with Maj. Gen. Hara while on deployment and during various disasters and exercises here at home. They have established a great working relationship and will make an excellent team,” said Gov. Ige.
“Being selected by Gov. Ige as the deputy adjutant general for the State of Hawaiʻi is truly an honor," said Logan. "I look forward to working on our state's priorities.”
