National Guard Names Female Chief of Staff

Posted: Updated:

The North Dakota National Guard has a new Army Chief of Staff. And for the first time in the state's history, it's a woman.

Col. Giselle Wilz was appointed by Major General David Sprynczynatyk. She takes over for Col. Mike Aberle, who recently retired.

Wilz says she's looking forward to the challenges and opportunities of her new position.

"My goals are to take care of soldiers and families.  It's the number one priority.  The best way to do that is to ensure soldiers are trained and well-equipped and ready for deployment, whether it's a federal mission overseas or locally here, helping to fight disasters in North Dakota," says Col. Giselle Wilz.

Wilz joined the Guard in 1983. And this isn't the first time she's broken new ground for women in the state. We'll tell you more about her career tomorrow.
