MONTPELIER, Vt. — The head of the Vermont National Guard is due to get a new job as the deputy commander of the U.S. military's Northern Command.

The Northern Command was created following the 9/11 attacks to protect U.S. territory and provide military support for civil authorities in the event of a national emergency.

If confirmed, Maj. Gen. Michael Dubie would become a three-star general. He would be the second general from the ranks of the National Guard to fill the number two position. And if confirmed, Dubie would leave his post at the Vermont Guard National.

Northern Command is based in Colorado Springs, Colo. It is responsible for protecting the continental United States as well as Alaska, Canada, Mexico and surrounding international waters.
