God bless him and may he rest in peace. I didn't know they would allow someone to re-enlist at that age.

Rest in Peace Major. To his family, know that we are grateful for his service and the ultimate sacrifice paid by not only him but you his family too.

I found more info on him. He was a very interesting man.
...Hutchison served in Afghanistan for a year before deploying to Iraq in October, heading a 12-soldier team that trained the Iraqi military, his brother said. Later, he was assigned to help secure Iraq's southern border.
Hutchinson, who grew up in California, taught psychology at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles on and off between 1988 and 1996, and lectured and taught at two other colleges, according to school records. He then worked at a health care corporation in Arizona before retiring and re-entering the service, his brother said...
