A spokesman for the National Guard today confirmed that Scott Brown is set to retire from military service.
“Brown submitted a request to retire” and “is scheduled to retire on 30 Jun 14,” a spokesman for the Maryland Army National Guard, Lieutenant Colonel Charles S. Kohler, said in e-mails.
Kohler said that Brown will retire “on his mandatory retirement date.”
Brown, who joined the Massachusetts Army National Guard in 1979, transferred to the Maryland National Guard in 2012. A lawyer, he has been serving both at the Pentagon and at the nearby National Guard Bureau headquarters.
Brown will be honored at a retirement ceremony at the Pentagon on May 13, the Globe reported Monday.
A former US Senator from Massachusetts, Brown is set announce a bid for US Senate in New Hampshire on Thursday. He is hoping to unseat Democrat Jeanne Shaheen.
A Brown campaign spokeswoman referred questions on the specifics of his retirement to the National Guard.
