After graduating from the Advanced Management Program at Harvard University, General Hay served as the Army Member, Military Studies and Liaison Division, Weapons Systems Evaluation Group, Office of the Secretary of Defense, from December 1962 to June 1964. General Hay was then assigned as the Commanding General, Berlin Brigade , in West Berlin, Germany, from July 1964 until August 1966, at which time he became the Commanding General, 11th Infantry Brigade, U.S. Army, Pacific, September 1966-January 1967. In February 1967 he became the Commanding General of the 1st Infantry Division in Vietnam and held this position until March 1968, when he was reassigned as Deputy Commanding General, II Field Force, Vietnam, responsible for the defense of Saigon. He left Vietnam in August 1968. On 5 September 1968 he assumed the dual position of Commandant of the U .S. Army Command and General Staff College, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, and Commanding General of the U.S. Army Combat Development Command Institute of Combined Arm$ and Support.
