1st Lt. Benjamin J. Hall was one of several generations of a military family. His father is a retired Army colonel. Both of Hall’s grandfathers served in World War II; his great-grandfather in World War I; and his great-great-grandfather was a Union soldier in the Civil War. Benjamin’s family moved around many times while he grew up an “army brat”, but he never had problems fitting in wherever they were as he was a very giving, humble person. Benjamin ran cross-country and was an Eagle Scout.

He graduated from Woodbridge Virginia’s Hylton Senior High School in 2001 and from Michigan Technological University with a degree in political science in 2005.

He was commissioned in 2005 as a Distinguished Military Graduate from the Army ROTC program at Michigan Technological University, where he was the top cadet. He went Fort Benning, Georgia, six weeks later, where he qualified as an Army Ranger and Army Paratrooper. In the fall of 2006, he was promoted to first lieutenant.

He was killed at in Asadabad, Afghanistan, from wounds suffered when insurgents attacked his unit during combat operations in Chowkay Valley, Afghanistan. He was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment (Airborne), 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team, Vicenza, Italy.

Benjamin is survived by his parents, retired Col. John Wademan Hall and Sarah Ellen (Lothringer) Hall; two sisters and a brother.
