In preparation for a subsequent deployment to OEF XI/XII, his platoon was selected as the core for building F/1-17 CAV, an OH/AH Troop which would support 3-82 GSAB. He led his platoon through train up and a Joint Readiness Training Center rotation, whereupon he moved to 3-82 GSAB to serve as the Recon/Attack planner and OH-58D PIC/AMC through the deployment.

Upon redeployment, LTC Hayes served as the senior remaining Commissioned Officer in 6-17 CAV after deactivation of the unit and assisted in receiving personnel and equipment from 3-159th Aviation, Germany, as part of the 1-25th Attack Reconnaissance Battalion build. He then served as the S3 Operations Officer of the USARAK Aviation Task Force for ten months until his selection to attend US Air Force Command and General Staff College at Maxwell AFB, Alabama. He earned a Masters Degree in Military Operational Art and Science with Honors, and attended the AH-64D Aircraft Qualification Course en route to his next assignment.
Selected to return to Fort Wainwright, Alaska, LTC Hayes served as S3 Operations Officer, 1-25th Attack Reconnaissance Battalion, with whom he again served a nine-month rotation to South Korea, this time as the Rotational Heavy Attack Reconnaissance Squadron. During the rotation, LTC Hayes served as the Task Force Executive Officer and Operations Officer simultaneously for several months, until finally transitioning to the Task Force Executive Officer role through redeployment. In July 2019 LTC Hayes transferred to 1-52 GSAB, where he served as the Executive Officer during his remaining year in Alaska.
