Gov. Holcomb announces Indiana National Guard leader to depart

Courier-Times Staff Report

INDIANAPOLIS – Gov. Eric J. Holcomb today announced Indiana National Guard Adjutant General Courtney Carr will retire.

“Upon my recommendation, Maj. Gen. Carr has announced his decision to retire,” Gov. Holcomb said. “I received his resignation letter Saturday, and I thanked him for his service to our state and country.”

Carr was named as the defendant in a civil suit filed Aug. 1 in Marion Superior Court by Indianapolis resident Shari McLaughlin.

According to court documents, the lawsuit accuses Carr of harassing and intimidating McLaughlin after she reported he had been having an alleged affair with a subordinate.

Carr has served as Adjutant General since 2015 and his resignation is effective Friday.

Brigadier General Timothy Winslow will serve as the interim Adjutant General. Winslow is a career Army National Guard aviator and was promoted to brigadier general in May.
