ANDREWS AIR FORCE BASE, Maryland -- Former 169th Fighter Wing commander Brig. Gen. Scott Williams assumed command of the Air National Guard Readiness Center Aug. 7.

Lt. Gen. Harry M. Wyatt III, director of the Air National Guard, presided over the ceremony. He said Williams' integrity and leadership were why he was selected for the position and that his background makes him the right choice to continue to lead this world-class organization into the future.

Williams most recently served as the director of the South Carolina Joint Force Headquarters Joint Staff where he served as a senior advisor to the Adjutant General of South Carolina on matters of training, manning and readiness of more than 10,500 South Carolina Army and Air Guard personnel.

He said, "My priorities will always address our mission, our people, and our future," said Williams. "Any decision I make will be made with these priorities in mind."

The ANGRC ensures ANG field units are resourced to train and equip in support of missions across the entire spectrum of military operations and provide support sustaining Airmen throughout their careers.

Williams' goal at the ANGRC is to continue providing the best possible support for ANG airmen, adequately resourcing units to fulfill overseas and homeland mission requirements and positioning the Air Guard for continued, long-range success.
