Major General Vadnais’ military career began in 1970 on his enlistment as a Soldier in the 107th Maintenance Battalion, Michigan Army National Guard.  In 1973 he was selected for leadership training and was commissioned as a 2d Lieutenant of Field Artillery on completion of the Michigan Military Academy Officer Candidate School.  His many notable career duty assignments include Commander of the 1st Battalion, 119th Field Artillery Regiment, Commander of the 1st Battalion, 182d Field Artillery Regiment, Commander of the 46th Infantry Brigade, 38th Infantry Division (Mechanized).  His General Officer assignments include service as the Assistant Division Commander for Maneuver, and as the Commanding General for the 38th Infantry Division (Mechanized), one of the 8 National Guard Divisions in the country, and the Commander for the Joint Task Force Cyclone in response to Hurricane Katrina where he provided command and control of the over 14,000 Soldiers and Airman deployed to Mississippi.
