Indiana National Guard

The Indiana National Guard has named its first-ever African-American general.

A graduate of The Citadel, Col. Wayne Black joined the Indiana National Guard in 1996.  He is now the assistant adjutant general.  Black says he doesn’t feel any added pressure as the Indiana Guard’s first African-American general, in part because he didn’t ever feel like there was a ceiling to his advancement.
