Vermont National Guard Adjutant General Michael Dubie is getting ready to take a new job. WAMC’s North Country Bureau Chief Pat Bradley reports…
Last week the U.S. Senate confirmed Dubie's promotion to the rank of lieutenant general and his naming as deputy commander of the United States Northern Command.
The Northern Command was created following the 9/11 attacks to protect U.S. territory and provide military support for civil authorities in the event of a national emergency.
The new job means Dubie will leave the National Guard post he's held since 2006.
