Army Maj. Gen. William Ingram, a 1970 graduate of NC State, has been named the director of the Army National Guard.
He will be responsible for developing and coordinating all programs and policies affecting more 350,000 citizen-soldiers.
Ingram’s nomination to the post was confirmed by the U.S. Senate last week. The Senate also confirmed Ingram’s appointment to the rank of lieutenant general, which brings a third star.
Ingram is a former adjutant general of the N.C. National Guard and current special assistant to the Army vice chief of staff.
