The Senate voted unanimously Tuesday to confirm Major General Harold Cross as adjutant general of the Mississippi National Guard.

There was no discussion before the vote. Afterward, senators applauded Cross, who was in the chamber.

Gov. Haley Barbour tapped Cross to be adjutant general upon recommendation of a group of retired National Guard officers.

Cross had been serving as interim adjutant general since January 13.
