Personal life[edit]

In July 21, 1969, Hammond was watching the moon landing in the hospital with his father who had his first heart attack two days before (SG1: "1969").

Hammond has been married and has two grandchildren, Kayla and Tessa, whose phone number is the "1" button of his office phone above the President of the United States. His wife died of a cancer before he was assigned to Stargate Command (SG1: "Tin Man"). He was living in Texas. Bra'tac refers to him as "Hammond of Texas" (SG1: "The Serpent's Lair").

Military career[edit]

Lt George Hammond in 1969 (SG1: "1969").

Hammond has been a US Air Force officer since the mid-1960s. He met Henry Hayes (who was Lieutenant at this time) in these years and the two of them became good friends since (SG1: "Lost City", Part 1). On August 4, 1969, he was a Lieutenant assigned to the Cheyenne Mountain complex. He met SG-1 who came 30 years from the future and read a note he wrote himself 30 years later. In order to avoid court-martial for helping them to escape, Colonel Jack O'Neill shot him with a Zat'nik'tel (SG1: "1969").

Hammond participated in Vietnam War. He saw in Vietnam his best friend shot down. He saw his parachute open, radioed his position but they never found him (SG1: "Revelations"). He served with General Jacob Carter during the Cold War (SG1: "Secrets").

His supposed last assignement was the Stargate Command in replacement of General West after 1995. He was a month away from retirement before the beginning of the Stargate program (SG1: "Children of the Gods", "Within the Serpent's Grasp").
