INDIANAPOLIS -- Indiana National Guard Adjutant General, Maj. Gen. Courtney P. Carr, is pleased to announce the selection of Col. Tim Winslow, of Carmel, as the Indiana Army National Guard chief of staff effective Sept. 1.
Winslow, moves from his position as the Indiana National Guard’s plans, operations and training officer, a job he’s held since September 2015, and he will replace Col. Tim Thombleson.
“I’m excited and humbled by the opportunity to assist with the strategic direction of this great organization,” said Winslow. “Preparing our Army National Guard to respond to civil and natural emergencies as well as filling our role as the operational reserve for the Army, will remain our focus moving forward.”
The Carmel resident deployed twice with the Operational Support Airlift Agency as the advanced party officer-in-charge of establishing the first National Guard fixed-wing aircraft into Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom battle space.
Winslow has served in the military for more than 30 years. Prior to his commissioning, he enlisted into the Indiana National Guard in 1986 as a component repair specialist. He also served tours with the Colorado Army National Guard and the OSAA HQ in Washington, DC.
Winslow earned his Bachelor of Arts in advertising from Purdue University in 1989. He also holds a Master of Business Administration from the University of Phoenix and a Master of Strategic Study from the U.S. Army War College in 2013. His awards include the Master Army Aviator Badge, five Meritorious Service Medals and three Army Commendation Medals.
“The ability to synchronize efforts across the organization is critical to our overall readiness,” said Carr. “Col. Winslow has a demonstrated record of building trained, professional soldiers and programs throughout the Indiana Army National Guard. His continued service supports our efforts to respond when called upon.”
