Va. Air National Guard gets New Commander

Posted:

SANDSTON, Va. (AP) - The Virginia Air National Guard is getting a new commander.

Officials say Brig. Gen. Wayne A. Wright is set to take command on Thursday following the retirement of Brig. Gen. R. Zane Johnson. Johnson took command of the Virginia Air National Guard in June 2010.

Wright currently serves as the Virginia National Guard director of the joint staff. In his new role, Wright will lead the state's Air National Guard and evaluate training programs and operational readiness levels. He'll also be the primary adviser to Brig. Gen. Timothy Williams, the state's adjutant general, on Air National Guard affairs.

Wright served as acting adjutant general of Virginia from June 11 to July 14, 2010, and also served as the Virginia Air National Guard chief of staff.
