Strub To Succeed Mathews As Deputy Adjutant General

Brig. Gen. Matthew Strub will formally succeed retiring Brig. Gen. Joane Mathews as the Wisconsin National Guard’s deputy adjutant general for Army during a Friday, May 13 ceremony at the Wisconsin Department of Military Affairs, 2400 Wright Street, in Madison, Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin Army National Guard change of authority ceremony will take place at 2 p.m. on the drill floor.

Strub will be promoted to brigadier general in a ceremony earlier May 13 before officially assuming the role as deputy adjutant general in the afternoon.

In that role, Strub will assume command of the more than 7,000 Citizen Soldiers of the Wisconsin Army National Guard. The Wisconsin National Guard consists of nearly 10,000 Citizen Soldiers and Airmen between the Army and Air National Guard.

Strub succeeds Mathews, who will retire after a groundbreaking career during which she became the Wisconsin National Guard’s first female and Native American deputy adjutant general for Army, chief of staff, brigade commander, and other notable achievements. The Wisconsin Department of Military Affairs previously announced that Mathews will become the next director of the Wisconsin National Guard Challenge Academy at Fort McCoy.
