The U.S. Senate confirmed the nomination of Col. Bill Boruff for promotion to the rank of brigadier general Oct. 31, which became effective Nov. 2, 2017.

Boruff was commissioned as a second lieutenant in Field Artillery from the ROTC program at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke, North Carolina. He joined the Army Acquisition Corps in 1995 and in July 2017 took command of the MICC.
