MONTPELIER — The Legislature will choose the next leader of the Vermont National Guard later this month.
The newly-appointed senior uniformed officer will shepherd the Guard through the arrival of the F-35 jets, a possible brigade-wide deployment and increased scrutiny on the Guard’s handling of sexual harassment.
Four candidates are seeking the top job: Col. Greg Knight, who is on active duty service with the Vermont Army National Guard, and three retired officers, Brig. Gen. Dave Baczewski, Lt. Col. David Graham and Col. Rosanne Greco.
Maj. General Steven Cray has led the state’s Air Guard and Army Guard for the past six years, but chose to retire rather than seek a fourth 2-year term.
