Major (Inactive) Christopher Miller,RA, INF, MI




Major Christopher Miller (inactive) is a 1971 graduate of the State University of NY, University Center at Albany. He entered the Army in February 1972 completing Basic Combat Training at Ft. Jackson, SC, then attending the 26 Week Infantry Officer Candidate School at Fort Benning, GA from April-October 1972, being commissioned both Infantry and MI. After Airborne School he completed the Combat Intelligence Staff Officer Basic course at Fort Huachuca, Arizona in January 1973. Then 2LT Miller was assigned to Fort Sill, Oklahoma, where he served as S-2 of the 1st Bn/12th Field Artillery. This was a tactical intelligence assignment to a unit testing and certifying the theatre level Lance nuclear capable missile for deployment to the European Theatre of Command. After one year he volunteered for and was accepted for strategic intelligence training at Fort Devens, Massachusetts, where he completed the six-month 2GF12 Signals Intelligence Course. As an Army Security Agency (ASA, later Army Intelligence and Security Command INSCOM) asset, then 1LT Miller was assigned to USA Field Station Augsburg, Germany, (a Brigade level organization with a real time intelligence mission), where he served in four assignments of increasing responsibility: Assistant S-1, Executive Officer HHC, Station Watch Officer, and then Operations Officer of 1st Operations Bn supervising approximately 450 Officers and enlisted personnel and over $100M of equipment. Miller received his RA commission and was promoted to Captain during his four years on station. He departed Augsburg in spring 1988 for advanced training. Cpt Miller attended the MI Officer Advanced Course at Fort Huachuca, then the Electronic Warfare/Cryptologic Tactical Operations Course, and the Signal Security Officer Course at Fort Devens. Cpt Miller was then assigned as Commander, Operations Company, US Field Station Korea, in Camp Humphreys with additional responsibility for three DMZ border site locations. He served in this position from April 1979 through April 1980, during the time of the Korean CIA assassination of President Park, and the withdrawal of S. Korean troops from the DMZ to quell the subsequent coup. CPT Miller was then chosen for the Junior Officer Cryptologic Career Program at NSA, a highly selective and competitive three-year joint service program where he performed classified assignments for the Director NSA and received Masters level signals training from April 1980 – April 1983. One key assignment that can be discussed was assisting in setting up strategic support to the Joint Unconventional Warfare Task Force in what became SOCOM. After this assignment Major Miller then served as an all-source analyst at the Defense Intelligence Agency from April 1983-June 1984 at which time he resigned from active duty to go into private business, while remaining affiliated with the intelligence community; he continues that affiliation. His awards during his 12 years of active service include the Defense Meritorious Service Medal, the Meritorious Service Medal, the Army Commendation medal, and the Parachutists badge.

Miller has become an active businessman after his departure from full-time military service. From 1984 – 1990 he managed a multimillion-dollar portfolio of investments and real estate construction. In 1990 he joined TRW and managed bidding, proposals, and finances for government contracts. In 1999 he joined the government arm of Unisys, a multi-billion-dollar IT services firm, running their Government IT Managed Services Division as a Director. In this capacity his division was asked by the CIO of the newly formed Department of Homeland Security to bid the first nationwide Airport TSA security contract, which was won. He departed Unisys in 2001.

In 2000 Miller purchased a 54,000-sf industrial building on 7 acres, growing that into a 36-acre industrial park encompassing 260,000 sf of rented space. That business has afforded him the financial independence to begin to give back to the community in the form of grants and scholarships. He looks forward to enhancing this giving back process by participating in TUSAOCSAA BOD.

Miller is a member of the British Special Forces Club, the US Army Navy club, the Association For Intelligence Officers and is a senior licensed professional SCUBA instructor.
