Obviously you don't watch Hogans Heroes for military accuracy. However, considering he was a Colonel, Hogan must have had a reasonably lengthy and successful military career be being captured. If he was on the wrong side of the law, I'd assume he was never caught.
No, I don't. Not for historical accuracy, either.

Hogan has a gift for running con games and is quite adept at stealing using misdirection. I doubt he learned these skills at the military academy.

Jimmy Stewart went from 2nd Lieutenant to full Colonel in about three years while serving in the USAAF in WWII.
