Brigadier General Mark H. Berry will succeed Major General William D. Wofford as adjutant general of the Arkansas National Guard, the Asa Hutchinson transition team announced today.

Berry, who has 40 years of military service including 20 years of active duty, specializing in air traffic control, has been chief of staff of the Arkansas Air National Guard. He is believed to be the first adjutant general from the Air Force.


The Hutchinson statement:

“It is my pleasure to announce Brig. Gen. Mark Berry as the new Adjutant General of Arkansas. Brig. Gen. Berry is a principled leader who, over the course of his 40 year career, has served our state and country – at home and overseas – with honor and integrity. Those traits, accompanied with his experience and extensive knowledge of Arkansas and our military, make him the obvious choice for this new role.”
