Harry Thetford: Military family works for Carolina Field of Honor

It’s no surprise that Gisela Hood is such an enthusiastic worker on behalf of the Carolina Field of Honor, coming soon to Triad Park. After all, her husband, Dan Hood, is a Citadel graduate. When they met, fell in love, and married in the early ’70s, he was a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers helicopter pilot.

Gisela Hood’s military heritage does not entirely hinge on her husband’s service. Her father fought in Word War II, under one of the war’s most illustrious generals. In a recent visit to her hometown, she enjoyed a photo op with the general’s son, former mayor of her hometown.
