Gov. Shumlin's Statement on Pres. Obama's Nomination of Maj. Dubie for Lt. General

Gov. Shumlin issued the following statement regarding President Obama's nomination of Major General Michael Dubie for Lieutenant General:

“Major General Michael D. Dubie has been nominated by President Obama to be promoted to the rank of Lieutenant General. The President has made a wise choice. General Dubie richly deserves this rank, and Vermonters should be proud of the honor this promotion represents.

I have had the privilege of working with General Dubie for many years, and am proud to call him a friend. During General Dubie's tenure, the Guard deployed the largest force to war since WWII and responded with courage and skill to the devastation from Tropical Storm Irene. General Dubie's steady leadership and poise under pressure make him well-suited for the rank of Lieutenant General.”
