Michel was the commander of Camp Shelby in Hattiesburg from 2015 to 2017. He retired from the Mississippi Army National Guard as a colonel, having joined the guard as a combat medical specialist in 1988 and entering full-time service in 1998. As he rose through the ranks, Michel deployed to Iraq in 2005 as executive officer of the 1-155th Infantry Battalion.

Michel earned a bronze star and was president of the National Guard Association of Mississippi in 2014-2015.

Bryant’s senior criminal justice policy adviser had led the agency since Lee Smithson resigned in May, citing alcoholism and post-traumatic stress disorder.
