OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Govenor Brad Henry has picked Army National Guard Maj. Gen. Myles Deering to be Oklahoma's adjutant general, the state's top military officer.

In his new post, Deering will serve as military adviser to the governor and commander of the Oklahoma Air and Army National Guard.

Deering served as commander of Oklahoma's 45th Infantry Brigade from 2004 to 2008. He led the 45th in recent deployments to Iraq and in 2005 served as task force commander of 15,000 National Guard, Reserve and active duty troops in New Orleans during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

Henry says the 56-year-old Norman resident has shown himself to be a leader capable of handling any challenges that come his way.
