Brownsburg doctor promoted to general

The Indiana National Guard’s state surgeon and medical detachment commander was promoted to brigadier general in a ceremony Sept. 18.

The Brownsburg native, Col. David E. Wilmot, has more than 25 years of military service with the Indiana National Guard.

The National Guard Bureau assigned Wilmot to the position of deputy chief of staff for readiness, Army Medical Department, Army Surgeon General for Mobilization, Readiness, and Reserve Affairs.

”The health and welfare of the country’s citizen soldiers is in the careful hands of a Hoosier,” Maj. Gen. R. Martin Umbarger, Indiana’s adjutant general, said in a press release. “I can’t say that I could feel any better about that. His professionalism, the dedication and drive, we’ve seen it here, and now the nation will see it.”

In the ceremony, Wilmot received a beret, pistol belt, pistol, and one-star flag for his new position.

Wilmot deployed to Iraq with the 738th Area Support Medical Company and was the clinic physician in Baghdad from January to May 2006. He was also the brigade surgeon for Stabilization Force 15 from March to July 2004 in Tuzla, Bosnia.

Wilmot joined the National Guard in October 1985, and graduated from Indiana University School of Medicine. During his military career, he has earned many military awards including the Bronze Star Medal, Defense Meritorious Service Medal, and the Meritorious Service Medal.
