The Senate has voted to confirm Air Force Lt. Gen. Stanley “Sid” Clarke as the next director of the Air National Guard, the Air Force announced Wednesday.

Clarke, a three-decade military veteran who was nominated in mid-December 2012, will succeed Lt. Gen. Harry “Bud” Wyatt upon his retirement at the end of this month.

Wyatt has led the Air Guard since 2009 and Clarke currently serves as commander of the Continental U.S. North American Aerospace Defense Command Region and 1st Air Force.

“I look forward to the opportunity to lead the best Air National Guard in our nation’s history,” Clarke said. “The Air National Guard, and the 106,000 men and women who make it work, has served our nation and our communities with great distinction in combat and during numerous domestic crises.”

“He will help shape and guide the Air Guard as we forge ahead to the future,” Wyatt said.

The Air Force said Clarke will develop and coordinate policies, plans and programs for the Air Guard.
