Permanent military judge for Mississippi

A permanent military judge has been installed for the first time to preside over state ("Title 32") courts-martial in Mississippi. According to this announcement, "Mississippi has had military judges appointed in the past for brief periods or to preside over a particular case, but [Col. Lee] Thaggard is the first appointed to the position permanently." The report does not indicate Judge Thaggard's term of office, if any.
