LTG (Ret.) Peter A. Kind (1994)

LTG (Ret.) Peter Kind is a former Chief of Signal and was inducted as a Distinguished Member of the Signal Regiment in 1994. LTG Kind served with 97th Signal Battalion and 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne) in Germany during his 31-year career. He also was Signal adviser to 21st Infantry Division (Air Assault) in Vietnam; assistant division Signal officer, 82d Airborne Division; executive officer, 82d Airborne; and executive officer and S-2/S-3 (intelligence/ operations and training) for 82d Signal Battalion. He then served in the War Plans Division, Strategy, Plans and Policy Directorate, office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations and Plans. LTG Kind also commanded 1st Cavalry Division’s 13th Signal Battalion at Fort Hood, Texas; 1st Signal Brigade in Korea; and the Signal Center and School at Fort Gordon, Ga. He also served as U.S. Army Information Systems Command’s commander and deputy controller of the NATO Integrated Communications System Central Operating Authority.

In 1988, as program executive officer for command and control systems, he was instrumental in building credibility for the Army’s tactical command, control and communications arena. His achievements in protecting and strengthening C2 programs included fire support, intelligence and electronic warfare, air defense, maneuver control and combat services support; he integrated C2 systems for the Army and was recognized for this throughout the Defense Department and in Congress. At the time, because of poor understanding of C2 programs, LTG Kind on his own initiative made personal visits and delivered many keynote and banquet addresses to educate the Signal Corps and senior leadership in government and industry on these C2 programs’ importance to the total Army mission.

A key contributor in the Signal Corps Regimental Association and the Armed Forces Communications-Electronics Association, LTG Kind’s awards include the Distinguished Service Medal, Legion of Merit with one oak-leaf cluster, Bronze Star Medal with two oak-leaf clusters, Meritorious Service Medal with two oak-leaf clusters and SCRA’s Silver Order of Mercury.
