Maj. David Smith has been selected to serve as the new inspector general for the 165th Airlift Wing of the Georgia Air National Guard.

The inspector general or “IG” serves as the “eyes and ears” of the commander.

Maj. Smith’s professional education includes both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in education from Georgia Southern University.    

Prior to his selection as the Wing’s inspector general, Smith served as the commander of the 165th Security Force Squadron and most recently served as the Wing’s military equal opportunity officer.
