A pinning ceremony was held today for the first African-American to be promoted to Brigadier general in Indiana. Governor Mike Pence led the ceremony for Brigadier General Wayne Black, who has almost 30 years of military experience, and becomes one of only eight individuals to hold this rank in the Indiana National Guard. Brigadier General Black joined the Guard in 1996 and was deployed to Afghanistan in 2009 as commander of an embedded training team that provided training, mentorship and oversight to the Afghan National Police and the Border Police.
