If Senate confirms, Jim Hoyer to be named W.Va. National Guard adjutant general
...
Hoyer should move into the position after the state Senate confirmation process is completed in February. He will also receive a second star when he is promoted to major general when he takes the position. Advertiser
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- As a child growing up in the Mink Shoals area just outside of Charleston, Jim Hoyer always knew he would join the military.
He comes from a family with a military tradition, but never would have believed that someday he would attain the rank of brigadier general.
Nor would he have thought he would eventually be named the adjutant general responsible for more than 6,000 soldiers and airmen in the West Virginia National Guard and Air National Guard.
Yet that's the title Hoyer will be given when he takes over for Maj. Gen. Allen Tackett, who is retiring on Jan. 20. Tackett was the longest-serving adjutant general in the history of the West Virginia National Guard.
Hoyer will assume the role Feb. 1 after the West Virginia Senate confirmation process is completed, he said. Then-Gov.
...
Earl Ray Tomblin both have given their approval for Hoyer to succeed Tackett.
...
Hoyer was also stationed in Baghdad from 2005 to 2006.
...
"I guess it's a family tradition," Hoyer said. "They imparted onto me a sense of responsibility."
Hoyer has two sons, an 18-year-old who is serving in the West Virginia Air National Guard and a 14-year-old who has expressed an interest in joining the military.
The bulk of Hoyer's career has been with the Special Forces, which is where he met Tackett. The two men have worked together ever since.
Hoyer currently is the director of the Joint Staff for the West Virginia National Guard. He manages and directs the day-to-day activities of the West Virginia National Guard Army and Air National Guard for the adjutant general.

Over the years, Hoyer has worked closely with Tackett. He doesn't envision any policy changes when he takes over - namely because he has worked with Tackett since he became adjutant general in 1995.
"I see my role of carrying on his vision of 'Fort West Virginia' and taking care of the soldiers, airmen and their families," Hoyer said during an interview Wednesday.
...
Hoyer said the center trains West Virginia National Guardsmen to respond to incidents and situations around the globe.
"So West Virginians can live here and go on missions around the world," Hoyer said.
The agency also trains nongovernmental units and urban rescue teams from around the world, he said. The U.S. Air Force requires its active duty chemical and biological response personnel to train with the Joint Interagency Education Center as well.
The center has three facilities in West Virginia. One is at Camp Dawson in Preston County and the others are at the St. Albans Armory and in the former West Virginia Turnpike Memorial Tunnel.
Hoyer has firsthand knowledge of the Joint Interagency Training and Education Center. He worked with Tackett on the concept for many years.
"I've been a part of helping to build that capability and vision," he said. "I'm a firm believer in the concept of Fort West Virginia."
Hoyer will not only move into the adjutant general's office on Feb. 1, but also will receive a promotion at that time. A major general holds the adjutant general's position and Hoyer has already been approved for the rank.

The all-clear was given after new tests showed levels back well below one part per million, but General James Hoyer with the National Guard says they're now focused on a new criteria.
"We're going to a level 100 times below that for sample testing that we do in this next phase," said Hoyer.
According to the Center for Disease Control, ten parts per billion is a safe level for pregnant women to be able to drink. Right now, Hoyer and his team are seeing that at West Virginia American Water's plant in Charleston, but there's still work to do in the outlying areas.
The National Guard won't leave until they see the results everywhere.
Hoyer says he recognizes the anger from customers, but assures that officials have just as much at stake.
"People who are my family, who are the guard's family, who we love; we love the people of West Virginia and we're frustrated like everybody else," said Hoyer.
In the meantime, he encourages patience and trust in the experts at the CDC, while offering praise for the work all communities are doing in coming together.
"West Virginians have responded extremely well, in a difficult period, like they always do," said Hoyer.
