Col. Anthony “Ché” Bolden retired on July 3, 2019 in a ceremony held at the Navy-Marine Corps Stadium’s Akerson Tower in Annapolis, Md. Brig. Gen. Brian Cavanaugh, Deputy Director for Joint Staff J3 Operations, U.S. Marine Corps Forces Pacific, retired Ché Bolden. Upon his retirement, Ché Bolden added to his family’s long legacy with his 26 years of service to the Corps. His father, Maj. Gen.

With a combined 60 years of honorable Marine Corps service, the Bolden family certainly left their mark on military history.

“It’s rare to come across someone superior in all of our values,” said Cavanaugh. “Ché is an excellent moral, mental and physical warrior in all respects.”
At the ceremony, Ché Bolden received a Legion of Merit Award for his service as the Assistant Chief of Staff for the MCICOM G-3/5 and G-7 Directorates. During this time, Ché Bolden proved instrumental to the operation of 24 installations with over 33,000 personnel.
While it is easy to identify the Boldens’ contributions to Marine Corps history, future innovation has been the name of the game for Ché Bolden in recent years. At the direction of Marine Corps Installations Command (MCICOM) Commander Maj. Gen. Vincent Coglianese, Ché Bolden played a pivotal role in establishing and organizing the revamped G-7 Modernization and Development Directorate.
