Indiana National Guard promotes Shelbyville native to major general

The Indiana National Guard promoted its newest general during a ceremony at the Indiana War Memorial earlier this month.


Timothy J. Winslow, a Shelbyville native, was promoted by his family – wife, Catherine; sister, Janine; daughter, Jordan, and son, Josh – this past weekend to the rank of major general.


“I look forward to the challenge and opportunity of being the assistant adjutant general,” said Winslow. “I will serve the soldiers, airmen and civilian employees of the Indiana National Guard, as the adjutant general and I continue our people first strategy.”


Winslow, who recently served as the director of joint staff since May 2019, has served in many positions throughout the Indiana National Guard including the chief of staff, the 138th Regiment commander, the operations officer, the 38th Infantry Division chief of staff and the state's Army aviation officer among others.


“A highlight of this promotion is Tim stays on my command team,” said Lyles. “He's been an integral part of the team, helping to guide the Indiana National Guard during an unprecedented and historic time for our state and nation.”


During the ceremony, Winslow received a two-star flag as Indiana’s newest major general.


Winslow, who's rated as a master Army aviator, commissioned as a second lieutenant in May 1989 from the Purdue University Reserve Officers' Training Corps. He's flown more than 2,400 hours and rated for UH-60, OH-58, UH-1 helicopters and C-12 cargo planes.


Winslow, who lives in Carmel with his wife, Catherine, graduated from Purdue University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in advertising concepts.
