NGAUS Welcomes New Army National Guard Director
WASHINGTON (March 27, 2015) — The National Guard Association of the United States today released the following statement by retired Maj. Gen. Gus Hargett, the NGAUS president.
"Army National Guardsmen nationwide congratulate Maj. Gen. Timothy J. Kadavy of Nebraska on his Senate confirmation this morning to be the next director of the Army National Guard.
"Maj. Gen. Judd L. Lyons has done a good job under trying circumstances over the last 14 months as the acting director of the Army National Guard, but today's challenges require a director who is allowed to develop and implement a vision for the force.
"General Kadavy, a former adjutant general and veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, is the right leader with the right experience at the right time for the Army National Guard. And he will have the authority to move our force forward.
"We are elated with his confirmation and we look forward to working with him to make even better the most experienced and best trained and equipped Army National Guard in history."
