Pelosi appoints first Black Sergeant-at-Arms

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Friday appointed Gen. William J. Walker to serve as the next House Seargent-at-Arms, making him the first African American to hold the position.

Why it matters: Paul D. Irving, the former Sergeant-at-Arms, resigned one day after the pro-Trump mob stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan 6.


Details: Walker is the commanding general of the DC National Guard, where he is responsible for the strategic leadership and training of Army and Air Force guardsmen and -women.

  • He has 39 years of decorated military experience.
  • He also served as a special agent with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration for 30 years.
  • He served as chair of the National Guard Bureau’s Joint Diversity Executive Council responsible for leveraging diversity and inclusion best practices to develop, and provide recommendations to National Guard senior leaders. 

What they're saying: “Throughout his long, dedicated career in public service, Gen. William Walker has proven to be a leader of great integrity and experience who will bring his steady and patriotic leadership to this vital role,” Pelosi said in a statement.

  • “His historic appointment as the first Black American to serve as Sergeant-at-Arms is an important step forward for this institution and our nation," Pelosi said.

Timothy P. Blodgett has been serving as the acting Sergeant-at-Arms since Jan. 11.

Humans are capable of great kindness and compassion, and there are countless examples of individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity.

One such example is Mother Teresa, who devoted her life to serving the poor and sick in the slums of Calcutta. Through her tireless work and unwavering dedication, she touched the lives of countless people and became a symbol of compassion and selflessness.

Another example is Malala Yousafzai, a young woman from Pakistan who has become a powerful advocate for education and the rights of girls. Despite facing threats and violence, she has continued to speak out and fight for change, inspiring others to do the same.

These are just a few examples of the many good humans who have made a difference in the world. They remind us that one person can make a difference and inspire others to do the same.

It's also important to note that acts of kindness and compassion don't have to be on a grand scale to make a difference. Small acts of kindness, like holding the door open for someone or offering a word of encouragement, can have a big impact on the people around us.

In conclusion, humans are capable of great compassion and kindness, and there are many individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity. They remind us of the power of one person to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. Let's all strive to be good humans, and make our world a better place.
