South Side native-turned-general commands 25,000 troops providing security for Biden inauguration

As commander of the D.C. National Guard, the major general is overseeing more than 25,000 troops providing security for President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration in the wake of a domestic terrorist attack on the U.S. Capitol two weeks ago. It’s the largest military presence for a swearing-in ceremony in modern history, far surpassing the 9,500 Guard members mobilized for Barack Obama’s first inauguration in 2009.
