Vermont Adjutant General


The Vermont National Guard has a new adjutant general.

Brigadier General Steven Cray was sworn in on Friday at the Guard's headquarters in Colchester. He was elected adjutant general by the Legislature last week.

Cray succeeds Major General Thomas Drew, who assumed the job last summer after Michael Dubie resigned to take a Homeland Security job.

Cray has said that budget uncertainty is the biggest challenge he faces as he assumes command of the 4,000 men and women of the Vermont.

Vermont Air National Guard Brigadier General Steven Cray is going to be the state's next adjutant general. Cray says it's an honor to be elected to the top post in the Vermont National Guard, but he's taking office at a challenging time.


The Vermont Legislature is getting ready to elect the next chief of the state's National Guard. Three of the candidates vying to become the next leader of the Vermont National Guard have decades of military service. The fourth isn't a guard member and is running to oppose the possibility the Air Force could send the F-35 fighter plane to Vermont.
