Upon return, he served as the Executive Officer of the 101st’s Air Assault School specializing in multiple methods of conveying personnel and equipment from aircraft to the ground.

In 2010, Lieutenant Colonel Mainwaring was selected to serve as the Aide-de-Camp to the commanding general of the Mississippi Valley Division.
