Vermont National Guard officials are studying a revised draft of an environmental impact statement about how basing the F-35 fighter jet in Vermont would affect the area around the Burlington International Airport.
The Vermont National Guard says the United States Air Force has delayed the release of a final environmental impact statement on where to base its next-generation fighter jet, the F-35, until the fall.
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.
