Hutchison was killed when a roadside bomb exploded near his vehicle in Al Farr, Iraq. He was the oldest member of the U.S. military to die of combat-related wounds in Iraq or Afghanistan. Hutchison had served two tours of duty in Vietnam and voluntarily rejoined the Army under its retiree recall program.
