Lt. Col. Carl Farley, a Nashville resident, has been named the next deputy commander of Camp Atterbury near Edinburgh.
Indiana National Guard Adjutant General Maj. Gen. R. Martin Umbarger and Maj. Gen. Clif Tooley, senior mission commander for the Atterbury-Muscatatuck Center for Complex Operations, announced that Farley will begin that role May 1, according to an Indiana National Guard news release.
He will succeed Lt. Col. John Silva, who is slated to become the new deputy director for the U.S. Property and Fiscal Office and the director of resource management for the Indiana National Guard.
