O'Hara (1911-1987) was the former commander of New York State's organized militia and the former State Commissioner of General Services. Born and raised in Hudson, New York, O'Hara attended the U.S. Army War College and Command and General Staff College, beginning his military career in March 1934 as a private in the New York National Guard, and by the time WWII commenced he was an infantry battalion commander in the Pacific, earning a Silver Star for gallantry on Saipan. In 1959 he was appointed by New York Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller to his Chief-of-Staff, and commanding general of the New York Army National Guard and the State Division of Military and Naval Affairs. A key leader in state emergencies, he is remembered for supervising the mobilization of the forces in Rochester after racial disturbances in that city in 1964. Normal mailing folds. Slightly toned.
