We are very saddened to hear of the passing of Major General William H. Wade II. (Ret.) former Adjutant General of the California Army and Air National Guard from 2005 through 2010. May God comfort and bless his wife Leslie, their children Justin and William, and four grandchildren, his friends and fellow Soldiers.

Today Friday, October 22, 2021 at 11 a.m. A Memorial Service with full Military Honors was held at Mather Field, 10616 Superfortress Avenue, Mather, California.

He always supported us with our Military Unit and their families support efforts from our Operation Christmas For Our Troops & Their Families California State Capital kick-offs to our 225th Anniversary of the Purple Heart & Welcome Home Events. The first one in Southern California at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and the second at the California State Capitol in Sacramento California. He was a great Leader and loved his family,  Troops, their families and America.

“I will always remember sitting behind him on the bus everyday going from our Hotel to the Convention Center during the 2007 National Guard Conference in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Although he seemed quite at times he had a very good sense of humor and was always on the phone with his Unit Commanders in the field in Iraq and Afghanistan making sure his Troops were ok and had what they needed to defeat Americas enemies.

Major General Wade thank you for your great help and support of Yellow Ribbon America and Operation Christmas For Our Troops & Their Families through the years and of me personally we were so blessed to have you in our lives you helped us greatly to keep going and not give up… ~Brad White Founder and Chief Elf, Yellow Ribbon America and Operation Christmas For Our Troops & Their Families.”

“His legacy of integrity, commitment to mission, and the highest standards will carry on in the thousands of Soldiers, Airmen, and civilian leaders he touched throughout his near half-century of distinguished military service,” said Maj. Gen. David S. Baldwin, The Adjutant General of California.”
