Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- The Minnesota National Guard's first female senior enlisted advisor says she thinks seeing more women in military leadership roles is a sign of the times.

Command Sergeant Major Cindy Kallberg joined Sgt. Eric Marts on Heroes of the Heartland on WDAY-AM this morning.

Kallberg has been in the military for 27 years and joined the National Guard in 1995.

She advises the adjutant general on readiness, morale, discipline and training.

Command SGT. MAJ. Cindy Kallberg- Senior Enlisted Advisor: "We have right now the initiative for putting women into combat units that they haven't been in before, so I think it's just evolution. Eventually, women are going to make it up the ranks and achieve certain levels and I think it's just a sign of the times."

Last year, the North Dakota National Guard named another woman, Colonel Giselle Wilz commander of the 141st Maneuver Enhancement Brigade.
