MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - A freshly retired Army general has taken over as president of Georgia Military College.

Lt. Gen. William B. Caldwell IV was tapped for the job earlier this year and officially began his duties on Friday. Caldwell's 37-year active military career officially ended Friday, allowing him to begin the job at the Milledgeville campus.

The 59-year-old Caldwell is a native of Columbus and graduate of the United State Military Academy at West Point. He succeeds retiring Maj. Gen. Peter J. Boylan.

The military institute includes a junior college and preparatory school for middle and high school students.

His career included an appointment at the White House. He also commanded the 82nd Airborne Division that was dispatched to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.
