    Colonel Wayne Black has become the first black Brigadier General in the Indiana National Guard. After serving for 30 years, Black was promoted this past Saturday at a ceremony at the Indiana War Memorial. Black will help to lead Indiana’s National Guard of almost 14,000 service members.

    Colonel Black joined the Indiana National Guard in 1996. He was deployed to Afghanistan in 2008 as the commander of a training, mentorship and oversight team to the Afghan National Police and the Border Police.

    The Colonel will now be one of only seven Brigadier Generals in the Indiana National Guard. The 1984 Citadel graduate will be an assistant adjutant general.
