New Commander of Illinois National Guard

Posted:

SPRINGFIELD --The Illinois National Guard has a new leader.

Brig. Gen. Daniel Krumrei takes over for Congressman William Enyart, a retired major general who was elected to Congress as a Democrat last November. He had been in command of the Illinois National Guard since 2007.

Krumrei was command staff chaplain for the Illinois National Guard since 2005. Gov. Pat Quinn in December appointed him to take over for Enyart.

Krumrei assumed command in a ceremony over the weekend at a high school in Chatham.

Roughly 13,000 people serve in the Illinois National Guard.
