COLCHESTER, Vt. — The head of Vermont’s National Guard is leaving his position next year.
WCAX-TV reports that Maj. Gen. Steven Cray will be stepping down in February to retire from the military. Cray has been leading the Vermont National Guard since 2013.
Jackman allegedly exchanged flirtatious emails for weeks with an unidentified female Army colonel who worked at the Pentagon, and he set up a rendezvous with her under the guise of a work trip in January 2015.
In Vermont, the Legislature appoints the state's adjutant general.
It's expected that at least two candidates will lobby for the post.
Cray supported successful efforts to give Guard members free tuition to state colleges and universities.
