Posted by Reginald Johnson in Business, Domestic Issues, Homeland Security, Military.

Maj. General Leo J. Baxter, USA Retired, has been appointed as Oklahoma State President, AUSA.  The Association of the United States Army (AUSA) made the announcement today.

Known as the only non-profit Association that represents all constituents of the Army, AUSA is excited of the new appointment.  AUSA represents active and reserve component soldiers and their families, retirees, Department of the Army civilians, the business community, and anyone interested in the land component of national security.

Baxter’s new job as a state president will require Baxter to assist the Fort Sill and Oklahoma City chapters in the dual AUSA mission of being the “Voice for the Army and Support for the Soldier.”   He will also work with the state legislature on state issues of concern to members. Basically, he will be the voice of the AUSA in Oklahoma.

The AUSA press release gives a short biography of Maj. General Baxter, Retired.:

“…Baxter retired in 2000 after 31 years of active duty.  Since then he has served the local community and the State of Oklahoma on numerous boards and commissions.  He was appointed by Gov. Frank Keating to membership on the Board of Directors of the Oklahoma State Board of Career and Technology Education, serves as a member of the Board of Trustees of the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs, a non-profit think tank promoting free enterprise and limited government, and is the president of the United States Field Artillery Association, with membership in 79 chapters worldwide.  He also serves as a member of the State leadership committee for Sen. Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma.”
