Alabama Guard has a new deputy IG

Lt. Col. Arnetta E. Minney has joined the Inspector General’s staff as deputy IG for the Alabama Army and Air National Guard. She will assist the state IG, Col. Sheri Tonner, receiving and processing requests for assistance. She will also assist in directing and conducting inquiries and investigations as directed by the Adjutant General.

Minney will complete both the Air Force and Army Inspector General’s Courses to complete her qualifications as a deputy IG. She will attend both courses later this summer.

Minney was a member of the Alabama Air Guard’s 187th Fighter Wing at Dannelly Field in Montgomery.

She recently moved to Alabama from Alaska where she had lived for 15 years. She received her first inspector general experience in drill status with the 176th Wing in Alaska. While serving with the 176th, she also served as Deputy Mission Support Group Commander and Aerial Port Flight Commander.

Minney is married and has three daughters, Beth, 13, Sophia, 11, and Hannah, 9. Her husband, Lt. Col. John L. Minney, is a member of the 187th and currently works in a civilian capacity at Maxwell Air Force Base with the AF Culture and Language Center.

My Photo

I grew up in the military. Mom was an Air Force nurse for a few years, dad was a navigator on B-52s, among other things. One grandfather served in World War II, uncle is retired Navy, other grandfather and great-uncle served in Korea and a cousin is currently serving in the Marine Corps. Currently, I'm the military reporter for the Great Falls Tribune in Montana. Previously, 

As a military kids, we moved all over. As an adult, I've traveled all over and moved for work. But now, I'm putting down roots in Montana with my boyfriend. We just bought a house and are slowly but surely making it our home. We have more land that we know what to do with at the moment. Now we're getting a garden started, tearing down walls and having loads of fun at what we call the Homestead.

In a part life, I did PR for the guy who built the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the National Mall, social media for the National Museum of Health and Medicine, before that, edited two military technology magazines for a publishing group in the DC area and before that, I was the military reporter (among other things) at the Montgomery Advertiser, covering Maxwell Air Force Base, the Alabama National Guard, veterans and anything else military related in the area. And in between all of that, I leave town, preferably the country, whenever possible. It all started when I spent a semester in New Zealand.
