Michigan Court of Appeals Judge Amy Ronayne Krause administered the oath from the Michigan National Guard Headquarters in Lansing, where Wilson’s family, friends and colleagues gathered. Wilson, who serves at the JAG Legal Center in Charlottesville, Va., passed the Michigan Bar Exam in February. Commissioned as a military intelligence officer in the U.S. Army Reserve after attending Liberty University on a four-year ROTC scholarship, he has served as a platoon leader, executive officer, and battalion intelligence officer. While attending law school, he continued serving in the U.S. Army Reserve and also worked with the Ingham County Veterans’  Treatment Court.
