KYTV, Channel 3 - Springfield, MO - Army strategist now heads Missouri's security, 13 Oct 2001 [cached]
Now technically in retirement , Tim Daniel is the homeland security'' adviser to Missouri Gov.Bob Holden , a newly created and first-of-its-kind position among states.
Barely two weeks into the job , Daniel's imprint is visible.On Daniel's recommendations , Holden ordered more police officers to the largest state buildings , identification badges for state employees and metal detector scans for visitors.
That's just the start.
With military-like coordination , Daniel will convene a group of state government and local law enforcement officials to review and improve security statewide.
Missouri is , in fact , in pretty good shape from what we know today , '' Daniel said.The future , however , is uncertain. ... Missouri , unfortunately , could be vulnerable to that next step.''.
Although born and raised in Wyoming , Daniel moved to Columbia after he retired Aug. 1 from the Army , partly because of all the years he spent in Missouri during three tours at Fort Leonard Wood.His wife Carol went to work as a patient care representative for the University of Missouri medical system ; Daniel hoped to regain his once impressive golf game and find a job in state or local government.
Then came the terrorists' attacks of Sept. 11 on the World Trade Center and Pentagon , Daniel's former place of employment.He was regretting his retirement when Holden offered him a job similar to that of Pennsylvania Gov.
Daniel was back in action , going immediately to work -- though he had no office for the first several days.Friends weren't surprised.
He's top-notch and had an outstanding military career , '' said U.S. Rep.Ike Skelton , top Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee whose district includes Fort Leonard Wood.He knows how to get things done , and thinks toward the future and doesn't just react.''.
Daniel was drafted during a new war in 1970 but never ended up in Vietnam.He went back to school at Wyoming , where he briefly played baseball for his dad , as well as golf , and graduated with a degree in international relations.
Then he renewed his military career , starting in Fort Sill , Okla. , and going next to Fort Leonard Wood , Turkey , France , Israel and back to Fort Leonard Wood as a battalion commander.After holding a top spot in the Pentagon , he returned to Fort Leonard Wood as the garrison commander.
When the commanding general at Fort Leonard Wood , Robert Flowers , was named to head the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers last year , Daniel followed him to Washington as a planner and adviser.It was there that Daniel became involved in the national debate over the Corps' proposed changes to the seasonal flow of the Missouri River -- an issue still unsettled when he retired.
Daniel came to know Holden several years ago when the then-state treasurer visited Fort Leonard Wood for an event with the Regional Commerce and Growth Association.Wowed both by Daniel and the praise that local people had for him , Holden made a point to stay in touch with Daniel and placed his name on a mental list of potential appointees in his administration.
Others were similarly impressed.Larry Sexton , an automobile dealer in St. Robert and then-chairman of the regional commerce group , says Daniel was instrumental in winning approval for a unique technology park pairing the military with the University of Missouri on the fort's grounds.
Tim was very effective in many trips to Washington and the Pentagon in convincing superiors that it did make sense , '' said Sexton , who describes Daniel as a big picture guy'' and a visionary.''.

When at the Pentagon himself , Daniel initiated the Army After Next'' program that seeks to transform the Army for future types of war.If he can develop strategy for the Army , some former co-workers say , Daniel can surely work to ensure Missouri's security.
He's really gifted at organizing people and getting people to rally around him , '' said Lt.Col..Tom Murphy , director for information management at Fort Leonard Wood.He has the capability of being a strategic thinker.''.
Daniel , who earns $100 , 000 annually in his new state post , thinks he can review and improve state security in a year or less.Then it's on to something else , perhaps a less military-minded job -- or maybe not.
As Daniel said : Everybody wants to be participating and contributing during times of ( trouble ) , when the nation needs you.''.
