Inolan promoted to Rear Admiral


Inola native Dr. Robin Osborn, now of Springfield, Ohio, was promoted to Rear Admiral (lower half) effective April 1 by Major General Debra Ashenhurst, The Adjutant General of the Ohio National Guard. He has been appointed Commandant of the Ohio Naval Militia by Governor John Kasich.
The Ohio Naval Militia (ONM) is an organized, unarmed, all volunteer unit that has been serving the State of Ohio and our nation since 1896. 
The unit serves under Ohio’s Adjutant General and it’s operational headquarters is on the Camp Perry Training Site, just outside of Port Clinton, Ohio, on the shores of Lake Erie. Ohio’s Adjutant General is responsible for Ohio’s Organized Militia which include the Ohio National Guard and the State Defense Force. The State Defense Forces include the Ohio Naval Militia and the Ohio Military Reserve. 
The ONM’s active mission is to patrol the government impact area off Camp Perry, in the waters of Lake Erie. It is a live-fire area that requires keeping pleasure boaters and fishermen from entering. By patrolling the impact area, the ONM provides support for the Ohio National Guard and other military units as they perform weapons qualifications prior to deploying overseas to fight the war on terrorism.
Admiral Osborn served in the United States Navy for 27 years attaining the rank of Captain. He retired from the naval reserve in 2006.  He served four and one half years on active duty first at Naval Hospital San Diego and later in 2002 as regimental surgeon of the 25th Marine regiment, recalled to active duty after the attacks on 9/11. 
His other assignments included a total of 10 years with Marine units which included medical officer appointments to Marine Air Control Group 48 in Chicago, I MACE at Camp Pendelton, Calif. and The 3rd Battalion, 25th Marines in Cleveland.
