Retired Major General Emile Bataille, former director for combat support at the United States Strategic Command in Omaha, Neb., had a long Army career that found him at the front of big-picture policy decisions, including commanding 10,000 Guardsmen and women as Assistant Adjutant General for the Illinois National Guard and his presence in the command center for the events on Sept. 11, 2001.
