Governor Albert Bryan Jr. on Friday announced Col. Ivan R. Udell as the acting adjutant general of the Virgin Islands National Guard (VING) and retired Lt. Col. Elwyn Browne as chief of staff of the Office of the Adjutant General.

Col. Udell currently serves as the deputy chief of staff for Operations and Plans at VING and will serve as the acting adjutant general until Adjutant General-nominee Kodjo Knox-Limbacker completes his required retirement process from federal active duty as mandated by law.

The announcement comes as Gen. Debra Howell transitions from service as the territorial adjutant general of VING.

“I am grateful to Col. Udell and Lt. Col. (Ret.) Browne for answering the call to serve and thank them for their continued service to our Virgin Islands National Guard, our community and their service to our nation. I also thank Gen. Howell for her service to the people of the Virgin Islands as the territorial adjutant general and wish her well in her future endeavors,” Gov. Bryan said.
